"This is a great way to enjoy corn on the cob. I opened the refrigerator door this morning and saw the cobs of corn sitting on top of a package of bacon and thought, mmmmm those two would definitely go good together and yup I was right. Bacon does make anything better ;) Serves 1 as a meal or 2 as a side."

Step by Step Method
Soak the cobs of corn in water for about an hour.
Pull the husks back and remove the silks.
Sprinkle garlic powder over the corn, I like a good heavy sprinkle but it’s all up to you.
Wrap the corn cobs with 3 to 4 slices of bacon.
Place the husks back over the bacon and wrap tightly with two layers of foil.
Cook on the grill over direct medium-low heat, turning every ten minutes for 1 hour.
Remove from grill and carefully unwrap the corn.
Remove and discard husks.
Place the cobs on a plate and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese rolling the cobs of corn around on the plate to absorb the cheese.
Sprinkle with pepper.
Bite right through the bacon and ENJOY!
