Question Liquid Smoke

Does this product "go bad" or expire? I have several bottle of different types and I know they are at least 10 Years old.

Mine are 3 or 4 years old, im still using them and still upright and breathing too. Just checked my bottles and dont see a written expiration date on them . I did do a little searching. One brands website guarantees the product for 2 years. Claims because of its low PH and antimicrobial properties, it would last twice as long.

CharlieD it is used in foods you want to have a smokey flavor without having to acually smoke it... I have a bottle but for the life of me can't remember why or what I used it for... When the mind is working properly again, I might remember and i'll let you know...

Charlie, I use it when I make brisket. My brisket is made in the oven so the way I get that great smoky flavor is to use a capful of liquid smoke. It is great stuff, but very powerful so just a little bit is all you need. I also use it when making beef jerky.

I usually use it when making chili, or when using the forman grill, since the stuff on that grill doesnt get the charcoal-like flavor. The stuff is kind of potent ,and as a vinegary-like flavor as well, so u need to add it sparingly ( a few drops at a time). Probably could be added to marinades as well. In my store it is usually located by the steak sauce, and mine are in bottles not too much bigger than a tobasco bottle.

I tend to use it only for making my BBQ sauce. A little goes a long way.

I did add some to a meatloaf once too...

I've never known a bottle of Liquid Smoke to go bad. Charlie, I use it in my BBQ sauce. I also will add a few drops to ground beef when I cook hamburger patties on the stove. Once I had some tuna steaks. I rubbed a little Liquid Smoke on them and baked them. You could almost not have been able to tell the difference between them and beef steak!
