-------seasoning mix--------
1 ts Salt
1 ts Garlic powder
1/2 ts Ground cayenne pepper
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 ts Black pepper
1 ts Onion powder
1/2 ts White pepper
------main ingredients------
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

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
