My husband has been cooking corn on the grill this way for years. You don't have to use the seasoning if you don't like it. The bacon flavors the corn really well. Delicious.
The bacon did not add any flavor to the corn but my husband still enjoyed having a crispy piece of bacon to eat with his meal. We found that our corn burned wrapped in tinfoil and think it would have been better to grill them in their husks like we normally do. Overall we will probably not wrap our corn in bacon again but it was fun to try it once and disappointing that the corn didn't have more of a bacon taste to it.
I clean the "hairs" from the corn, wrap the bacon, and pull the husk up over. Flavor is perfect every time. I think I'll make some tonight!!!
DH wanted me to try this, but I wasn't sure how I would like this since I don't normally cook my corn anywhere near this long! I ended up cooking it for 40 minutes total (my grill is charcoal and a little harder to "turn down" to low) and the bacon was nicely cooked and the corn was VERY soft. I would highly recommend this for store bought corn of dubious age, but for FRESH farm-stand corn, I will stick with a quick turn on the grill so that the kernels are still crunchy and juicy. All that said, this corn was good, with a slightly spicy, bacon-y flavor that DH and I both enjoyed. We ate the bacon separately since it didn't stick to the corn. Four stars out of five because the super long cook time would murder a really fresh ear of corn.
This is a great way to grill corn! I've made this for years. Sometimes I will rub garlic butter on the corn before wrapping the bacon. Or instead, you can use a cheese sauce lightly then wrap the bacon. You can mix it up a little based on your taste- play around with different things! This corn is awesome!
Tried this and turned out great! I did burn the bottom of one ear, but other than that, WONDERFUL. I used another suggestion and put garlic butter on the ears before the bacon.
Like the saying goes: EVERYTHING is better with bacon!!!
Tasted great, but my bacon was not ready when the corn was. Still it was a nice change for corn on the cob.
Was different, but just ok.
