Heck Yes! Nothing says summer like corn-on-the-cob, but do you know what makes grilling corn on the cob even more awesomer? That’s right! Wrap those golden corn holders with BACON!  Now… Let me show you how some quick tips on how to make bacon wrapped corn on the cob with your grill.


1) Shuck the corn and then break each cob in half.

If you break the cobs in half… you will have twice as many. 🙂

2) Spray each section of corn with “non-stick grilling spray” or cover with butter. This will help your spices stick to the cob nicely.

Season with your favorite spices

3) Season your cobs of corn with pepper and/or your favorite vegetable seasonings. A great one that we recommend is called Tears of Our Rivals.
WOW! that was a really shameless plug. 😉  But… they are really wonderful spices. Seriously.

Use wooden skewers to hold each piece of bacon in place…. or don’t. I’m not the boss of you.

4) Wrap each half cob with 1-2 strips thin cut bacon, then season with spices again.

TIP: Use wooden skewers on the end of each cob to keep that yummy grilled bacon in place on the cob as it cooks.
