I don't get an invite to any family or friend bar-b-cue without the request that I be "in charge" of the corn!! Once you've tried this corn I know you'll agree. Grilling brings out the sweetness of the corn along with the smoky kick of the chili powder and bacon. Delicious!!

  • Can't wait to get this on the grill. I do realize you would/would not discord the bacon when the corn is done; as it is for moisture and flavor. Hope it will not kill off my trips each Sunday after church to the Farmers Market down town Dalllas for their fresh grill roasted corn on the cob. Thanks for the ideas and may you continue to enjoy grilling.

  • I put my hand in a sandwich baggie, pour a bit of Olive Oil in my hand to add oil or Crisco to whatever I am cooking. Then it is easier to wash my hands.
    I rub Olive Oil on potatoes to make the salt stick when I bake them in the oven. ... or to grease a cake pan. No mess on my hands at all.
    This will work with the corn on the cob too. Thanks for the recipe. I will be making corn on the grill. Yum.
