Preheat barbecue for high heat.
In a small bowl, mix together dark brown soft sugar, honey, liquid smoke and vinegar.
Brush one side of the salmon with the basting sauce. Place the salmon on the barbecue, basted side down. After about 7 minutes, generously baste the top, then turn over. Cook for about 8 more minutes, then brush on more basting sauce, turn and cook for 2 minutes. Take care not to overcook the salmon as it will lose its juices and flavour if cooked too long.
Liquid smoke flavouring is available from UK online retailers and in some specialty shops. Common brands are Hot Headz or Stubbs. While it's hard to duplicate the flavour of liquid smoke, if you're in a pinch, try omitting the liquid smoke from the recipe or using Worcester sauce instead.
