This is a cracking way to brighten up a fresh corn cob. The sweetness of the corn contrasts amazingly with the saltiness of the bacon, while the butter and cheese ties it all together beautifully.

Cooking Method: Char Grilling

Cooking Time: 30 minutes


Fresh Corn Cobs (The Char grill fits 3 whole cobs comfortably)

Streaky bacon rashers


Grated Parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper


  1. Peel back the husks as far as you can and remove the stringy bits. 
  2. Wrap a rasher of streaky bacon around the cob and give a sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  3. Wrap back up with husks and cook on the Ozpig char grill with a nice bed of coals, you don’t really want a raging fire here. If your fire is a bit hot you can pop your heat diffuser under the corn.
  4.  over with an upside down wok to create an oven ( or a sheet of aluminium foil) and cook for 30 minutes or until fork tender, turning the cobs over regularly. 
  5.  Remove the top half of the husks and put in a few dobs of butter and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, pop the wok  back on a cook until cheese melts.
