This recipe definitely is for garlic lover's! This is a great concept, but I did do this a bit differently with the abundance of fresh sweet corn during the summer grilling season. I just couldn't see using "frozen" corn. I'm also not sure why this recipe calls for using a whole cup of chopped whole corn. That being said, I chose to grill fresh sweet corn the way I normally do - in husk on the grill. I made a garlic butter using a slightly different ratio of butter to garlic. All that was left to do was top with the garlic butter, a little salt, pepper and break out the napkins!

We tried this tonight. Though we thought it was ok we like Mexican grilled corn better. I don't know we didn't like the blend of flavors.

So...what do you do with the cup of chopped corn? Otherwise, it sounds good!

I made corn similar to this last summer. Only difference is I wrapped each ear of corn with a slice of raw bacon before wrapping. The bacon really gives it an awsome flavor. I rated the recipe as written but with the bacon, it is definately 5 stars.

I softened my butter first, mixed in the garlic, some parsley for color and just slathered the ears before placing them in the foil. My family loved the corn this way! Thank you Janice!

Wonderful grilled corn recipe. My family loves garlic and thought this recipe was great.

I'm torn between doing grilled corn this way or soaking them with husks on for a while and then cooking on grill with husks, peeling them afterwards. I love garlic and this makes it easier to serve in the end. Either way, this is Great!
