-------------------------------SEASONING MIX-------------------------------
1 1/2 ts Black pepper
1 ts Onion powder
1/2 ts White pepper
1 ts Salt
1 ts Garlic powder
1/2 ts Ground cayenne pepper

------------------------------MAIN INGREDIENTS------------------------------
1/2 lb Bacon, minced
2 c Pork, beef or chicken stock
1 c Honey
5 tb Orange juice (1/2 orange)
2 tb Lemon juice (1/4 lemon)
2 tb Minced garlic
4 tb Unsalted butter
1 1/2 c Chopped onions
1 1/2 c Bottled chili sauce
3/4 c Dry roasted pecans, chopped
Rind & pulp from 1/2 orange
Rind & pulp from 1/4 lemon
1 ts Tabasco sauce

Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
In a 2-quart saucepan fry the bacon over high heat until crisp. Stir in
the onions, cover pan, and continue cooking until onions are dark brown,
but not burned, about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the seasoning mix and cook about 1 minute. Add the stock, chili
sauce, honey, pecans, orange juice, lemon juice, orange and lemon rinds and
pulp, garlic, and Tobasco, stirring well. Reduce heat to low; continue
cooking about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove orange and lemon
rinds. Continue cooking and stirring about 15 minutes more to let the
flavors marry. Add the butter and stir until melted.
Remove from heat. Let cool about 30 minutes, then pour into a food
processor or blender and process until pecans and bacon are finely chopped,
about 10 to 15 seconds.
This sauce may be used to barbecue chicken, pork or ribs. Makes about 5
Cups. From Paul Prudhomme's "Louisiana Kitchen"
