Grilling corn
What's your method? Inside the husk, wrapped in aluminum foil, or naked? If in the husk or naked, do you soak in water before putting on the grill?

re: Grilling corn
I shuck the corn but leave the husks. I use a lot of butter, pepper, some salt, and often Parmesan and them wrap the husks back around it

re: Grilling corn
I leave it in the husks but strip off some of the outer, more gnarly husk and cut the top end a bit to expose the corn and cob.

Then I soak it in a pot with heavily salted water and prior to grilling I'll let it drain a bit to get some of the excess water out.

My wife like it with a simple slathering of butter and just a bit of salt and pepper. I prefer it just salted a bit, no butter.

re: Grilling corn
wrap two ears together in foil with butter, olive oil, salt and pepper and grill indirect for about 30 min.

re: Grilling corn
First Grilled corn on the cob I ever remember seeing was at Silver Dollar City (circa 1980). They were cooking it on the grill still in the husk. Seemed good enough to me, so that is how I do it. I can't remember when I had an ear boiled in water. I just don't do it. If all they have is shucked ears, I will do it open (25%), or wrap in foil (75%). I really like butter on my corn.

Yep, straight on the grill. Brush on a sauce of butter/lime/cayenne (or other pepper powder) and baste a few time until done

re: Grilling corn
In the husk, soaked in salt water. Pull the husks back and remove the silk before soaking. It's easy to place them around the edge of the grill to cook while the meat gets the prime real estate. You get some char and smokey flavor without having to pay too close attention. Just keep rotating them from time to time.

re: Grilling corn
On the grill, in the husk, no soak. Then remove each layer as it dries or burns until all you have is naked corn.

Make sure you get some char marks.

re: Grilling corn
Remove most of the husk, cook it until almost done, remove husk and spread with mayo and spice blend I've made(salt, cumin, brown sugar, ancho chili poweder, garlic powder), put it back on the grill to get some good char on it.

re: Grilling corn
shuck and then straight onto the grill. Corn is one of those foods that is perfect as is. Add that charring along with the slight smokiness from the coals, and you have yourself one fine enjoyable moment of eating.

Now if you are looking to season it, then do what a previous poster stated by rewrapping the husk.
