Spread pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. (Don't overbake; pecans burn easily.)
Melt butter and honey in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add pecans, stirring until coated. Cool completely.
Combine sugar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Remove pecans using a slotted spoon, and place in sugar mixture, tossing to coat.
