    It depends if you are going to grill or smoke something outside then no but if you are making something that requires for it and it is cooked in an oven then to get the desired flavor YES

    Liquid Smoke is a food ingredient used to add a smokey flavor, similar to what is obtained when cooking over an open wood fire (see barbecue). The product is produced by burning hardwood chips (notably hickory) and condensing the smoke particles with water into a liquid form. The liquid is then scrubbed and filtered to remove all impurities. It is most often added to sauces and marinades to flavor meat, poultry, and seafood.

    What are you making? Liquid smoke adds the smoky taste you get with cooking over an open fire. It usually can be left out but you will lose flavor.

    Depends on what you are making but it is a full flavored liquid and whatever you are making may turn out bland.

    You need it if the recipe calls for it. There is NO substitute except actually smoking.
