“After extreme frustration at the lack of stock and high prices of smoked paprika I took matters into my own hands. This works like a charm, and you end up with 18 oz, or 1.22 pounds of the stuff. I used 3.5 oz of Wright's Hickory Liquid Smoke at a $1.29 a bottle, and Spanish Style Paprika, $4.29 for 18 oz.”
