I''m a newbie so excuse me if this is a dumb question but why use liquid smoke if your are curing in a smoker?

I like them to be extra smokey, so they get the flavour from the liquid smoke and take on the colour from real smoke.

Hi Big Guy, they look really good and tasty, well done. Pic no.4 reminds me of an old joke over here - what's a camera and a sock have in common - one takes photos and the other takes 5 toes, okay, I'll get my coat !
