Hi D'Lacie -- sorry we missed this question! Here's Russ Parsons' original recipe: it calls for 2 tsp. orange zest & a tablespoon of smoked paprika, along with a few other spices, for 1/4 cup of kosher salt: http://www.latimes.com...

I used paprika and orange with my turkey and it turned out wonderful for a 10lb turkey with 2Tbls salt, 2 tsp smoked paprika, and 1 tsp orange zest. Very lightly flavored, but there nonetheless.
