Let's get to the recipe so you can make your own perfect grilled corn on the cob!
Ears of corn
Most of the time I buy fresh corn on the cob still in their nice green sleeves. Our local stores didn't have a very good selection, so I bought this pack at Costco and they were great. The stores now have a better crop of corn so I will be buying it that way until the local produce stands have fresh corn.
- Shuck your corn and make sure to remove the silk. This is a great time to trim the top and bottom of the corn to make them flat so it's easy to add the corn holders at the end.
- Lay out pieces of aluminum foil large enough to wrap the corn tightly so none of the moisture escapes.
- Butter the corn to your liking.
- Season with the salt and pepper.
- Wrap the corn up in the aluminum foil. I place the extra length together and fold it down over and over so it is sealed tightly. I carefully roll the ends of the foil, making sure that the foil doesn't tear.
- Heat the grill to medium and place the wrapped corn onto the grill. Cook for 20 minutes, turning the corn every 4-5 minutes so it doesn't burn on one side.
- Remove the corn from the grill, unwrap from the foil, add the corn holders, and serve!
This corn is wonderful and there will be happy eating noises around the table. What is your favorite way to make corn on the cob?
