    Corn on the grill

    What's the best way to do this? Husk on or off? Tin foil or straight on the grill? Seasoning or no?

    Re: Corn on the grill

    What I like is to shuck the corn, smear it with butter, add salt and pepper, wrap in foil and let it steam in the butter/natural juices.

    Re: Corn on the grill

    i do it with husk on no seasoning. soak in water 15 mins before throwing it on and it will stay plenty moist. (season after you remove husk from cooked corn of course.)

    i wont go as far as saying this is the BEST way but its how i do it.

    Re: Corn on the grill

    I've always had good luck by pulling off any really loose husks then soaking the corn in water for at least a couple of hours. I put it on the grill without seasoning, turning the corn as it cooks. The outside husks will get brown or even black, but the corn cooks nicely. I use a charcoal grill, so I don't know how it would work on a gas one.

    Re: Corn on the grill

    I also usually do husk-on after soaking in water. Possibly not the best way to do it, but certainly the easiest. So long as it is good corn, it is mighty tasty.

    Soak in corn for at least 30 mins. Pull husks back (but not off) so you can remove the silks and expose the corn. Brush with olive oil, I'll often add in some pepper and/or garlic powder to the olive oil. Put husks back. Grill. Enjoy.

    +100! This is the way to do "roasting ears." Don't forget to remove the silk before soaking.


    rocks!

    Same here....Corn is done when the husk dries out and starts to burn, steams cooks itself.

    The silk comes off much easier after roasting, comes off when you shuck the husk.

    I only pull back the husk enough to check for worms, then soak the ears for 15 min, roast on the grill untill the husk is again dry and starts to burn. Pull back the husk and the silk mostly just falls off with the husk, rotate rubbing off the husk and off comes the silk. Much easier than terying to get it all off before roasting. Eating is next after butter

    Leave it in the husk. Indirect heat. Awesome.

    Re: Corn on the grill

    Roasted corn in Seattle costs $4/ear. Just think of the money you are saving doing it yourself.


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).
