  1. Wash the husked corn.
  2. Wrap one slice of bacon around each ear. It probably won't cover the entire ear, but be sure it goes from one end to the other. Sprinkle with chili powder to taste.
  3. Wrap the corn and bacon and chili powder in heavy aluminum foil and place over medium coals, or medium flame on gas grill.
  4. Cook approximately 20-25 minutes. Time will depend on the size of the ears of corn, and how fresh they are.

My husband and I enjoyed this, but to be honest it didn't seem like the bacon added a ton of flavor to the corn. Nice presentation, though.

We tried this for the 4th of July. We used Galic powder on some. No butter needed and all enjoyed the great flavor.

I love this recipe, I've used Turkey Bacon and Regular Bacon and it's good both ways! I make this all summer long, it's easy and we never get sick of it!!!

Did some with chili powder and some with garlic powder. Both were really good. I did use a good quality thick sliced bacon and cooked them a little longer.

Really good and easy. If you can't succesfully cook this, get a propane "Weber" follow their cookbook and be an instant barbecue expert.

i've made this several times and we all love it
