This grilled corn has it all: sweetness, spice, and meat. It's perfect for a summer cookout with friends and family and will fit right in with other grilled goodies. Thick-cut bacon won't wrap around the corn easily, so don't buy it. Soak the toothpicks for 10 minutes before grilling so they don't burn up quickly.
