BBQ season also means fresh blueberry season -- they're at their best and their least expensive! Top them with a buttery, rich, crispy, crumbly topping laced with pecans and I'm in heaven. The tart fruitiness of the berries is the perfect thing to clean your palette after all those bold BBQ flavors. Serve with vanilla ice cream to get the full crumble experience.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

For the topping: Put all topping ingredients in a bowl and rub together with your hands until mixture sticks together in small clumps.
