                         -----SEASONING MIX-----
    1 1/2   ts           Black pepper
    1       t            Salt
    1       t            Onion powder
    1       t            Garlic powder
      1/2   ts           White pepper
      1/2   ts           Ground cayenne pepper
                         -----MAIN INGREDIENTS-----
      1/2   lb           Bacon, minced
    1 1/2   c            Chopped onions
    2       c            Pork, beef or chicken stock
    1 1/2   c            Bottled chili sauce
    1       c            Honey
      3/4   c            Dry roasted pecans, chopped
    5       tb           Orange juice (1/2 orange)
    1       x            Rind & pulp from 1/2 orange
    2       tb           Lemon juice (1/4 lemon)
    1       x            Rind & pulp from 1/4 lemon
    2       tb           Minced garlic
    1       t            Tabasco sauce
    4       tb           Unsalted butter
 
   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 onions, cover pan,
   and continue cooking until onions are dark brown,
   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. This sauce may be used to barbecue
   chicken, pork or ribs. Makes about 5 cups.
