Grilled Corn on the Cob

Boy, oh boy are you going to love this!   If you like corn on the cob, chances are you have had it grilled.  If you haven’t, here is an easy peasy way to keep all the cooking outdoors if a grilled dinner is on your menu.  Give this a try and let me know what you think…


Cobs of corn – quantity is per your preference
½ stick of butter ( 4 Tablespoons ) will serve 4 ears of corn
1 teaspoon garlic salt (will serve 4 ears of corn)
½ teaspoon pepper

First of all, as you are shopping for your corn look for a husk that still has bright green husks.  If you are able, pull the husk closure a bit away from the top of the corn and press your finger against one of the tip top kernels.  If it pops and the juice is on the clear side it should prove to be crisp juicy corn.   If the juice is thick and milky, the corn is old – pass on it.

Okay, on to the grilling process…. About an hour before you want to grill your corn, working with one ear at a time, pull each husk leave down but leave attached.   Then, gently rinse and rub the silk off of the corn.  When the silk has been removed, replace the husk around the corn.  

Then, place each of the ears into a large pot or bowl of cold water and allow to soak for at least 30 minutes.  

Meanwhile, melt the butter and mix with the garlic salt and pepper.

Then, remove corn from the water and drain. Next, working with one ear at a time, open the husk but do not pull it down.  Pour two spoonful’s of the butter mixture over the top of each ear and allow it to run down the inside of the husk. 

Then, wrap the husk tightly with aluminum foil.

Place on the top grate of your BBQ grill.   Cook for 5 minutes.   Then, turn the corn and cook another 5 minutes.   Lastly, open the foil and cook another 5 minutes so the corn will absorb some of the smoky goodness of the steaks you are hopefully cooking along with the corn.  Fifteen minutes all together should do it. 

Remove and enjoy while they are hot.   Smother with more butter and seasonings as desired.

Happy Grilling !!!
