You need to get as much of the oil out of the pecans as possible. Either smash them into pecan butter, or buy some (preferably all-natural) pecan butter. Then follow the processes for removing the oil described in this thread, among several others describing peanut butter beers. The recipe database also has a few penaut butter beer recipes; you can use them as a guide for how much pecan butter to use:
