Bacon Wrapped Grilled Corn on the Cob

Oh boy oh boy, this recipe puts a whole new twist to corn on the cob. Bacon seems to make anything better.  And there is nothing more satisfying to me than a nice ear of corn on the cob.  What a great combo! We have been grilling a bunch lately. I went to the library and got a video about grilling from Paula Deen. There was some fabulous recipes on there. I am so excited to try them!  I just love Paula Deen.  That woman knows how to make some serious comfort food. I also have another one of hers called Tastes Like Lasagna Soup on here, that is just heavenly. 

Bacon Wrapped Grilled Corn on the Cob

8 ears of corn
1 lb bacon

Gently pull back the husk exposing the corn. Do not remove the husk. Remove the corn silk and use a brush to make sure all the silk is removed. Soak the corn with the silks removed in water for 30 minutes. This will prevent the husks from charring.

Preheat a grill to medium heat.

Remove from the water and pat dry. Take a strip of bacon and wrap it around the corn. Fold the corn leaves back over, covering the bacon and corn. Tie the leaves with butcher string and repeat the process for each ear of corn. Place the ears of corn on the hot grill and cook, turning occasionally until bacon is cooked and corn is tender, approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
