MY REVIEW

I'm glad I'm not the only one who had trouble getting the bacon to be crisp. I will try jackofalltrades suggestion of microwaving the bacon before wrapping around the corn. Otherwise, super easy to make, and really, really yummy.

Yes, everything does taste better with bacon and some fat. I really liked this idea but improved the crispiness of bacon by taking off the aluminum foil the last 5 minutes or so to crisp up the bacon and brown up the corn as well. Before serving I drizzled some soy sauce. Yeah for the summer ideas.

sinfully good. there is some question as to how to make the bacon a little crisper. but beyond that--Why didn't we ever do this before?!!!

It was sooooo good! I will try some of the ideas submitted to get the bacon crisper, though, as I am a crispy bacon lover. The taste was terrific and I will definitely make this again and add it to my "keepers".

What a great combo....We have always enjoyed corn on the grill and this is just another great way to add something new to the BBQ.
