Where are you from and how do you pronounce "pecan"?

Same area as you but I say pee can! And oh I love the pecan twirls! I like to unwind them to eat them!

Alabama here (and before that Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee) and I say peh-kahn. I hate pee-can and rarely hear anyone say it that way except on television. Almost everyone I know says it either the way I do or slightly more like puh-kahn.
