I found another rice recipe that I had to try and it was so good I had to share! The unique ingredient in this recipe is the liquid smoke which provided the BBQ flavor that makes it so good. This particular recipe is baked, so plan ahead for the time spent in the oven. Serve this to you family and they will probably ask if you grilled it!! On another note, I overlooked the fact that the recipe calls for cooked rice and initially threw uncooked rice into the skillet. Lets just say it took a while to pick out the rice from the pan!!
