An Environmentally Friendly Process Producing a Cleaner, Safer Product
QST’s filtration process for liquid smoke removes undesirable components of smoke, some carcinogenic, to create a liquid smoke product that is safer, cleaner, and healthier than traditional smoke. And it provides the same benefits available from natural smoke:
• imparting flavor
• aiding in cure reaction
• Maillard browning on meat

In the liquid smoke process, non-condensable gases, like methane, are cycled back into the furnace to help produce the heat necessary to burn the sawdust, essentially making it a self-sustaining system.
