Easy Grilled Corn With BACON!

You’ve heard it said again and again: Everything is better with bacon. 

It is!

This weekend, why not add a little bacon to your barbecue and enjoy your corn on the cob with a new bacony twist! 

Here is all you need:

  • Fresh (Local) Corn on the Cob
  • Bacon 
  • Salt, pepper
  • (Optional) Smoked Paprika 

Let’s start cooking:

  • Fire up the grill. You want it to be very hot.
  • Peel the husks off the corn and make sure you remove as much silk as possible
  • Wrap with bacon (1 -2 pieces depending on the size of the ears of corn)
  • Season with salt and pepper or paprika to taste
  • Wrap the corn with foil and place on hot grill

Close the lid and let that bacon do it’s thing! 

Roll the corn about 1/3 turn every 4 minutes (approximate cooking time). Just listen to the popping and sizzling from inside the foil pack! YUM! 

NOTE: Bacon fat is flammable. Keep an eye on the foil packs! 

Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
