Humm ... want to eat at your house sometime Mish ... "Bong Water"! (Actually I had to go to the William Jefferson Clinton presidential memorial library website to find the definition of that term.)

But, basically you are right. Build a fire, use a vacuum to draw the smoke through a water filter ... you get liquid smoke. The flavor componets in the smoke are water-soluable, the bad stuff like tars and PAH's (carconogenic stuff) are not - they can be seperated from the water as easily as the tar and nicotine and such in my Science Fair experiement back in 11th grade.

So Hopz - the problem isn't that it is bad for you (probably safer than grilling a steak on the gill) but yes - it is a VERY concentrated flavor and should be used judiciously.

Alton Brown used soaked wood chips for his smoking source. just be sure that there is no glue in them such as used to make plywood, use pure wood.
