Or, depending on context, she might just have been saying to add cumin, which she describes as having a smokey flavor.

(Cumin to the garden, Maude...)

There is such a thing as smoked cumin. Perhaps that was it? It's not terribly common, AFAIK. Google might turn up a supplier in your area, or at least an online source.
It may well have been a combination of cumin and smoked paprika, as Lemonie suggests. This is a pretty common spice blend.

Also, she may actually have just been describing regular cumin as having a "smoky" flavor.

It was probably something TexMex.  TexMex usually has a high concentration of cumin.  I love TexMex.
