Grill-Roasted Corn on the Cob
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 6 ears fresh corn
  • Butter, melted
  • Lime wedges (optional, but good!)
  • Salt
DIRECTIONS
  1. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct, medium-high heat (the charcoal or gas flame is directly under the cooking area, and you can hold your hand just above grill level only 3 to 4 seconds;
  2. While grill heats, soak ears in water so that the husks are wet through. Then carefully peel back husks from corn, but don't remove them completely, and pull off the silks (the stringy stuff for those new to corn on the cob) ;)
  3. Brush each ear with melted butter.
  4. Push husks back over kernels and place corn on grill.
  5. Cook ears (close lid if using gas), turning as needed with tongs, until hot and speckled brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Pull back or remove husks completely, rub corn with lime wedges, if desired, and sprinkle with salt to taste.
  7. I always used to grill with my family up at the lake, and as a child was a picky eater, but always loved corn on the cob! (one of the few vegetable things I would eat)
