How to Make It

  1. Carefully peel back husks, exposing corn and leaving husks attached. Remove and discard silks. Soak corn and husks in cold water 5 minutes to prevent husks from burning. Remove corn from water; drain and pat excess water from corn and husks with paper towels.

  2. Combine margarine and remaining 3 ingredients; stir well. Brush evenly over corn, using all of margarine mixture. Return husks to original position, and tie tips with heavy string.

  3. Grill corn, covered, over medium-hot coals (350° to 400°) 15 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally.
