I added 1 1/2 teaspoon of liquid smoke; 1/4 teaspoon of cumin and 2 tablespoons of tomato paste. It had a much smokier flavor and offset the lemon zest, which I found too lemony.

I ended up using 1 Tbs of bottled horseradish. Not sure if the taste came through. This was o.k. It had more of a tangy tomato flavor than a BBQ flavor. I'd probably add an adobe pepper (for some added spice and depth of flavor) and cut back on the lemon zest next time. It was a little bit too much of a hint of lemon. I'd also maybe add some liquid smoke just to give it a nice smoky flavor. So I guess if you like your BBQ more on the tangy side this would be perfect. I like more of a smoky, tangy, with a hint of sweet flavor for BBQ dishes.
