I'm not a fan of having to peel back hot husks to eat my corn, so we removed all husks, slathered on the Brummel and Brown and sprinkled on creole seasoning (I can't imagine using 1T for each ear!! We used 1T for all four ears). Very good. We'll be grilling corn a lot this summer!

This just wasn't very good. I used a 1/2 cup of butter and only 3 tbsp. of cajun seasoning and I thought it was far too overpowering. I like spicy food and so does my husband but neither of us liked this. We had guests who were polite and said it was good but I will never do it again. Sweet summer corn is 1000 times better with plain ol' salt, pepper and butter. Save yourself the extra work and don't bother!

I ran out of room in the pan for boiling corn, so I tried this. Only I didn't grill it (no room on the grill), I buttered the cobs and sprinkled the seasoning on, wrapped them in tinfoil (already husked them)and popped them in the broiler at 400 for 1/2 hour. Very tender, better then boiled. The child in my house didn't try it, but I'm sure he would love it!! Thank you for the recipe. P.S. can't wait to try it on the grill!!

This is really good corn. I followed the advice of the other reviewers and allowed plenty of time to cook. I'd say more like 40 to 50 minutes than 25. I will make this again.

I mixed the seasoning and butter together then brushed the mixture onto the corn. It gave the corn a very nice flavor.

There's nothing like grilled corn on the cob and it's a great accompaniment to any BBQ meal! I grilled the corn as I usually do, soaking the corn in cold water mixed with sugar and salt for a few hours. I then grill it in the husk. When it was done I buttered it and then sprinkled with "Cajun Spice Mix" by Bobbie Jean from this site. This took regular grilled corn and gave it a nice kicked up Cajun flavor - great recipe that's very simple, yet very good!

Not too bad. My hubby and I enjoyed them. Allow plenty of time to cook on the grill.

Personally, I don't eat corn. I think it's gross. I generally just use it to feed deer :) However, the rest of my family does like corn so on occassion I will make some for them. According to them, this turned out very good. Perfectly cooked, perfectly flavored. The steaming process worked very well. Thanks.
