It's a seasoning made from passing wood smoke through liquid. It's used for adding that wood smoked flavor to foods.

Very potent. Very easy to over do.

It is the collected condensation from a smoker. It is very potent. A little goes a long way. Occasionally I braise baby back ribs in the oven and I add a "cap full" (maybe an 1/8 tsp) to the braise liquid. Makes it taste like outdoor smoked ribs. (well, almost)

You can also add some liquid smoke to some water in a pie tin and set it in your grill. That too will add a smokier flavor to whatever you are grilling.

It is also used in making your own beef, pork, etc. jerky in the marinade.
