Seasonings of Choice
Pull off a couple of the outer husks, removing them completely on each ear of corn. Pull back the remaining husks without breaking them off and pull off the cornsilk from the corn, rewrap the corn by straightening the husks. Repeat until all the ears of corn have the cornsilk removed.
Place the corn in a clean sink or clean bucket and cover with water. If you’d like you can add 1-2 Tablespoons of sugar to the water (depends on the variety of corn you’re cooking as to whether or not it’s necessary!). For example, you can make cow-corn taste delicious with this method.
Let them soak while the grill is heating to temperature. Place the cobs in a row on a hot grill and grill about 3-8 minutes per side (depending on how hot your grill is, whether you use charcoal, wood, gas, etc) Just lay a row out, they easily turn by running some tongs over the top. It doesn’t matter if the outer husks burn a bit, the inside corn will be hot and juicy.
Served with butter, salt, and pepper.
