Spray on olive oil
2 cups pecan halves
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 teaspoons hot pepper sauce ( like Cholula)

1/2 teaspoon black pepper, fresh ground
Preheat 12" dutch oven to 350°f . Lightly spray the oven with olive oil. In medium mixing bowl, mix all ingredients. Spread nuts in a single layer in oven. Toast 10 minutes until lightly brown, stirring once. Put nuts on baking sheet to cool.
