Let me just say, I have not boiled corn on the cob in years. We grill it baby!! Here is how to grill the perfect corn on the cob.
My dad was the king of barbecue but this tip comes from my mother. Growing up in Southern California, you get used to grilling year round. That gives you time to perfect those barbecue meals. This is so simple however that you will always want to cook your corn this way. No hot boiling pot of water in your summer kitchen.
This is the perfect way to prepare corn on the cob while camping or out on a picnic where you are grilling. You will want to start the corn first on the barbecue to give it plenty of time to cook and steam right in the husk. This gives the corn the best flavor.
Grilled Corn On The Cob
- Corn on the Cob in the Husk
- Heaping Teaspoon Salt
- At least a couple of hours before your barbecue, fill a large pan or bowl with cool water and dissolve the salt by stirring in the water. Put the corn, still in the husk, in the water and submerge and let soak out on the counter. Prepare your grill to about 325 degrees. Remove corn from the salt bath and lay on the grill. Turn occasionally. Grill 35-40 minutes. Remove from grill, cool just a bit and peel. Add butter, salt and pepper. Enjoy! Grill temperatures may vary. We use a traditional charcoal grill but the temperature gauge reads roughly 325.
