Smoky spiced salt with orange

This makes enough for a 20-pound turkey. Allow 2 generous tablespoons per 5 pounds of turkey weight.

1/4 cup kosher salt

1 tablespoon smoked paprika or pimenton de la Vera

1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon brown sugar

2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest

Pulse together the salt, smoked paprika, onion and garlic powders, cumin, black pepper, brown sugar and orange zest in a spice grinder or mash them in a mortar and pestle. Makes a little more than 1/2 cup. The mixture can be stored in a tightly sealed jar for up to 2 weeks.
