First, lay out your bacon on a baker's rack over a cookie sheet. I always use Trader Joe's Applewood Smoke-Cured Bacon, but any thick-cut, high quality bacon will work. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and cook the bacon until it's almost crisp, but not quite there yet (usually 8-10 minutes).
While your bacon is in the oven, use a coffee or spice grinder to finely chop 1/2 cup of pecans. You want the nuts to be close to a powder consistency. Combine the pecans with 1/3 cup of light brown sugar and mix well to incorporate the ingredients.
