Mealtime Prep - No Fuss Grilled Corn

Posted by   + Show Post

Corn on the cob is always a great bet for your summertime barbeque sides. Here's how to make the perfect cob.

When buying your corn from the store, make sure to pull back the husk just a bit and choose ears that have all their kernels in tact. The kernels should be firm and packed tightly on the cob.

Take them home and husk, removing all the silk.

Before putting on the grill, wrap each cob in tin foil. This ensures even cooking and flavorful corn. Cook for about 20 minutes on medium heat.

Serve immediately with butter and salt.

Moms, what other topping do you use on your freshly barbequed corn?

Sounds yummy. I like the taste of corn plain, occasionally I add butter

I wanted grilled corn last night, but my dh was slow cooking ribs so it didn't happen. I like my corn without the salt and butter because it tastes so sweet!

We girll ours with the husks on also. 

Quoting emilyrosenj:

We had grilled corn yesterday for the first time this summer.  We just cooked it right in the husk.  The kids shucked it and ate it without anything else.  I like butter and a tiny bit of old bay on mine!

If you don't like the black, put a little water in.  We also rub them with butter and salt and pepper.  Yum!  Nothing like corn on the cob off the grill!
