What an awesome recipe! I used a smokey mesquite Grill Mates spice blend, grinding it up to a powder and adding an extra 1/4 tsp. of popcorn salt. This worked well in my whirley-pop and left a beautiful, even coat of spices over the entire bowl of popcorn. I normally don't care for the "uncooked" taste of spices straight from the bottle, and this recipe really gives a toasted flavor to whatever spices you use. With the huge variety of spice mixes available these days, the possibilities are endless!
