My husband loves corn on the cob and has been making it this way for years! It is so good and the only way we will eat corn on the cob. He grills all year round and we even freeze the corn when it is freshly picked so that we can enjoy it during the long winter.

How to Make Grilled Corn on the Cob in Husks

Step-by-Step

  1. First soak the corn in cold water for at least 20 to 25 minutes. While the corn is soaking combine the butter, herbs, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl. After the corn has soaked carefully peel back the husk to within 1 inch of the bottom and remove the silk. Spread the butter mixture over the corn. Rewrap the corn in the husks and secrue the ends with string. Grill the corn covered, my husband will soak a burlap bag in water and cover the corn while he is grilling it over a fire pit on a thick metal plate that was used by his grandfather. You can grill your corn over medium heat for 25 to 30 minutes or until it is tender. Remember to turn the corn occasionally. After it is done cut the strings and husk your corn. Enjoy.
  2. He also makes a spicy corn and the ingredients are 1/2 cup soft butter, 2 large garlic cloves minced, 2 tablesppons of hot pepper sauce, your choice, he likes Chipolte, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, 1/4 teaspoon hot hungarian paprika. Follow the same directions as typed above.
