Sweet Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Thighs

This recipe was a hit with the boys, so I'm going to share it here. I learned afterwards that sugar in a sauce for grilling makes meat burn, but I didn't see a problem at all here, perhaps because the grilling time was pretty short.

Sweet Bacon-wrapped Chicken Thighs

8 chicken thighs
8 slices bacon (about 10 oz)
1/2 cup brown sugar
Marinade ingredients, below

Coat chicken thighs with the following mixture:

2 TB Worcestershire sauce
2 TB white wine vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Let stand for at least five minutes.
Roll the chicken pieces in brown sugar, covering well. Wrap one bacon slice around each thigh.
Grill, covered, for 15 minutes on high. Turn pieces over, turn temperature to low, and grill for another 10-15 minutes, for a total of 20-30 minutes, or till done.
