I love butter my corn. It's the only way to eat it.

I was searching for an in-husk method, and this nearly made me puke. What's the point of getting good, local corn if you're just going to drown it in fat and salt?

It's easier to just throw the husk and all on the grill, rotate every 10 minutes for about 40 minutes. It looks black when you are done, but the husk and silk peel off so easy and it really draws out the flavor. Wear a glove or mitt when husking.

I agree with Lizzi's method. That is how I do it also. Except after soaking I wrap in aluminum foil . Perhaps that is a wasted step but they steam perfect everytime. Also I pull back the husks and remove the silk,then put the husks back in place and soak. I am pretty much a purist when it comes to corn on the cob. Butter only. Sometimes, not even butter. Fresh corn is great. It doesn't need half a dozen ingredients added.

Our favorite cooking method is done by first soaking the corn In the husks for at least 30 minutes in a tub of cold water and then placing directly on the grill still in husks. turn every 5 minutes or so for a total of about 15-20 minutes. don't worry if husks burn, the corn will be absolutely delicious and not burned. let cool several minutes before trying to remove husks. the BEST!

I have grilled corn many times, but with a delicious twist: I mix some BBQ sauce into the butter, then brush the corn with that mixture before grilling. Each kernel is infused with the flavour of the sauce, which is used to enhance the meat that is accompanying the corn. It is a win-win combination. If you don't like eating the corn on the cob, after grilling, use a fork or knife to fun down the cob and remove all the deliciously flavourful kernels, then just enjoy ;)

This is how I grill corn on a gas or coal burning grill and it is always delicious. Absolutely turn your corn often and keep a good watch or they will burn very easily.
