Grilled corn on the cob epitomizes summer like nothing else. Grilled in its husk, our easy corn on the cob recipe takes on a wonderful, lightly charred flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Pull the husks back from corn, keeping husks intact; scrub off silks, and pull husks back over corn to cover. Place corn and salt in a large stockpot; cover with water. Let stand 45 minutes; drain.

Step 3

Place corn on grill rack, and grill for 8 minutes on each side or until husks are blackened. Serve grilled corn with butter.

I personally don't care for the "grassy" taste grilling with the husks on adds to the corn.

Had a great, smoky flavor. Didn't add the butter. The burnt husks make quite a mess,, though. Have done this twice.

So simple and so easy to prepare; but the flavor is outstanding! I followed the recipe exactly and they were perfect!!! I will definitely be making this recipe again - the soak and keeping the husks really made sure that the corn didn't "dry out" on the grill. Moisture was the key with the slight salt flavor. I served with the butter, but didn't personally think it needed any so I just ate it plain. Grab some fresh ears from your local farm stand and enjoy!
