Yummy!!! Made this to go along with Teriyaki Beef Kabobs and Microwave Fried Rice and what a fantastic dinner we had last night!!!! I followed the recipe as stated, but after being on the grill for about 15 minutes, I covered them in foil for the rest of the time. I think the bacon helped prevent the corn from getting dried out, which normally happens to me when grilling it!! Thanks for a great recipe!!!

Very nice and was something different and interesting for the BBQ. I cooked towards the back of the barbecue and turned occasionally during cooking.

This was good and everyone agreed it was a nice change from just butter. Only change i made was wrap the ears in foil. Thanks Jewelies.
