    Yes that does sound good. But it would look too white for my liking...So
    I would doctor it up with either brocolli and/or carrots, just for some
    color. But that's me. And maybe a splash or 2 of liquid smoke and some
    garlic.

    The paprika will give it some color.

    Heh. Learn something new every day on this group.

    I've seen quite a bit posted about liquid smoke (it's not available 'off
    the shelf' here - I could order it on-line, but never gotten around to
    it) but I don't recall anybody ever mentioning using it in potato soup
    before...

    That's because it's a stupid idea. He took a perfectly good recipe
    and fooched it up.

    Yes it does, but this is NOT potato bacon soup. Why does anyone want to
    screw around with a recipe so that it ends up just like one they already
    have?

    Well stated. I liked it because it was different. Nancy Dooley
    posted a wonderful one with bacon that's been passed on to many of my
    friends because it's so good. We don't need no stinkin liquid smoke!

    You can MAKE liquid smoke. Just bubble smoke through water until the water
    tastes smoky. Alton Brown makes liquid smoke by simply putting a shallow pan
    of water into a smoker and stirring it from time to time.

    So I see from your post. But I have to ask myself if I would want/need
    to do so. We do enough grilling (over charcoal and/or wood) to get
    (genuine) smoky tasting food on a regular basis.

    Heh. I had no idea it could be as simple as that; always thought it was
    a bit more complicated.

    Of course, there was some debate in UK/Europe as to whether it's 'safe'
    to use as a food additive....

    Hehehe. Bet you enjoyed it?

    What amuses (and sometimes amazes) me is how some folks seem to give a
    fig about other folks 'screwing around' with recipes. IMHO, if somebody
    wants to do that, it's no skin off my nose. As long as they enjoy the
    end result, I see no harm done (again, IMHO).

    I have a (sort of) rule for myself tho'. First time I try out a recipe I
    fancy on my family, I (usually) make it 'as written'. If the whole
    family likes it like that, I'll stick to it next time round - if there
    is a next time <g>. However, if we sort of enjoyed it, but felt it
    needed some tweaking - that's when I start to experiment. Works for me.

    I confess that I don't have any liquid smoke in the house, nor have I had it
    for quite some time. But it's an easy way to impart a smoky flavor to food
    quickly and in weather conditions which might preclude using the grill. It's
    also possible to use liquid smoke to add a smoky flavor to things which you
    don't want to heat for one reason or another, e.g., you could add it to
    ceviche.

    A little bit goes a LONG way, though.

    I sure found that out, when I made Kahlua Pig!!!

    When I went looking for it at the grocery store, it was on sale. I
    got two bottles. Needless to say, I am stocked for the indefinite
    future!!

    Christine, who is planning to "store" her smoker at Bob's temporarily,
    when she moves back to the bay area: if Lin didn't tell you, ask her.
