Liquid smoke is normally used when you are trying to add smoke flavor to. If you were to make your sauce and add it to your meat while smoking the liquid wouldn't be needed. I personally do not use liquid smoke, I let the Q add the flavor. Hope this helps

If you're smoking meat in a foil pan (like brisket), you can also save some of the drippings for smoke flavor...

Liquid smoke is most often found either in the seasoning aisle or in the katchup/condiment aisle of your grocery store in small bottles similar to what you'd buy vanilla in. If you're looking to flavor a marinade or meat before you put it on the grill or smoker it is in most cases redundant to the natural smoking that you'll be giving it. But if your looking to putt it in a sauce then yes you will notcie a big difference without it.
Hope that helps.
