Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.

  • Sprinkle each ear of corn with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper, and wrap each ear with 2 slices of bacon, covering the ear as completely as possible. (A big ear might need 3 pieces of bacon.) Wrap the ears in aluminum foil, twisting the ends tightly to seal.

  • Place the wrapped corn on the preheated grill, and grill on high heat until the corn is hot, about 10 minutes per side. Turn the heat to Low, and grill the corn until the bacon is cooked and the corn is tender, about 45 minutes.

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. Read More

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. Read More

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!!! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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!!! Read More

Everybody liked this! Personally I don't like under cooked corn, and I have some family members who need to cut the corn off the cob to eat it, so I boiled the shucked corn ears before wrapping them in the bacon. The corn still gets the grilled flavor when you roast it, but it's cooked more evenly. Read More

This was AWESOME! I wrapped cleaned corn with 2 slices of bacon on each ear sprinkled each with different seasoning and then enclosed it in foil. I used a sharpie to write what flavor was inside. Grilled them on a gas grill heated to 375-425 for about 55 minutes turning every 8-10 minutes(the temp would fluctuate when we opened the lid to turn). No need for butter or salt as the bacon left a smoky salty flavor as well as the different seasoning. I used chile powder on a few garlic pepper on a few and seasoning salt on a few. Going to try other different flavors next time. What a hit! My husband really loved this but who wouldn't love something grilled with BACON. Thank you for an awesome receipe! Read More

Tasted great but my bacon was not ready when the corn was. Still it was a nice change for corn on the cob. Read More
