Roasted Camp Corn

Prep time 30 mins
Cook time 5 mins
Grill time 25 mins
Yield Makes 6 servings
Serve with additional sweet pepper sauce and Creole seasoning, if desired.


  • 6 ears fresh yellow corn with husks
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon sweet pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Remove heavy outer husks from corn; pull back (but do not remove) inner husks. Remove and discard silks; rinse corn, and dry with paper towels. Set aside.

  2. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in 1 teaspoon basil and next 3 ingredients, stirring until blended.

  3. Brush corn evenly with butter mixture. Pull husks back over corn.

  4. Grill corn, covered with grill lid, over high heat (400° to 500°) 25 minutes, making quarter turns every 6 to 7 minutes. Pull back husks before serving.

  5. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Pickapeppa Sauce for sweet pepper sauce.
