  1. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the chili powder, oregano, onion powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Blend in the softened butter. Apply this mixture to each ear of corn, and place each ear onto a piece of aluminum foil big enough to wrap the corn. Wrap like a burrito, and twist the ends to close.
  3. Place wrapped corn on the preheated grill, and cook 20 to 30 minutes, until tender when poked with a fork. Turn corn occasionally during cooking.

This was very good. I grilled it for about 20 minutes over medium-low heat and had tender-crisp corn as a result. The flavor was good, and the sweetness or the corn came through. Next time I may add a little more spice.

Quite honestly, I liked it better spreading it on the corn after it was grilled. I tried it both ways. When I grilled the corn with the butter mixture on it, it seemed to make the corn a little "soggy". Next time I will try it with the fresh onion & garlic. Thanks Deann.

Great recipe for grilled corn - we grilled our corn the way we normally do which is in the husks. After they were done, we spread the butter mixture on top until melted - YUM!

We have made this corn probably a dozen times since we discovered this recipe. We haven't changed a thing and follow the recipe almost exactly. Guests always rave and are impressed by the flavor. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

What great way to make corn on the cob! It was very flavorful and easy. Will keep this one!

Loved it! I used the ingredients but just eye-balled the amounts. I also boiled the corn instead and added the butter topping while it was still warm. Thanks for posting this great recipe...I'm going to put it into rotation now!

This was something different. A good spice mixture. I think I prefer my corn on the cob just with butter tho.

None of us really cared for this. I think the cooking time is way too long; at least for our taste. The kernels weren't crispy at all, actually rather soggy.
