Tips and Tricks

Choosing the Corn

Pick fresh, tender corn for the best results. Look for ears with bright green husks and moist silk. The kernels should be plump and milky when you press them.

Seasoning Evenly

To ensure even seasoning, try mixing the Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper in a small bowl first. Then, sprinkle the mixture over the corn for consistent flavor.

Wrapping the Bacon

Make sure the bacon is wrapped tightly around the corn to prevent it from slipping off during grilling. You can use toothpicks to secure the bacon ends if needed, but remember to remove them before serving.

Sealing the Foil

When wrapping the corn in foil, ensure the ends are twisted tightly to prevent any steam from escaping. This helps cook the corn and bacon evenly and keeps the corn moist.

Checking for Doneness

To check if the corn is done, carefully open one foil packet after grilling. The bacon should be crispy, and the corn should be tender. If it’s not ready, rewrap and grill for a few more minutes.

  • Preheat the outdoor grill to high heat.
  • Take each ear of corn and sprinkle some Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper on it.
  • Wrap each ear with 2 slices of bacon, making sure to cover the corn as much as possible. If the ear is large, you might need 3 pieces of bacon.
  • Wrap the ears in aluminum foil, and tightly twist the ends to seal them.
  • Put the wrapped corn on the preheated grill.
  • Grill the corn on high heat for about 10 minutes on each side, until it becomes hot.
  • Lower the heat on the grill to low.
  • Continue grilling the corn until the bacon is cooked and the corn becomes tender. This should take about 45 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use frozen corn instead of fresh

While fresh corn provides the best flavor, you can use frozen corn in a pinch. Just make sure it’s thawed before wrapping it with bacon.

How do I know when the corn is tender enough?

Simply insert a fork into the corn. If it easily pierces through, the corn is tender and ready to be served.
