The best summer food of all time. If the husks burn dont worry, blow them out or rub a little water on them.

Let the corn in husks soak in a pot of water for 1 hour. Pull down the husks and remove the silk. Brush each ear with about 1-2 Tbs. of butter. You can also sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pull the husks back up around the ears. Place the corn on a gas grill over medium heat or on a charcoal grill 4-6 inches from medium coals. Grill for 20-30 minutes, turning the ears halfway through the cooking time.


The way to butter your ear of corn is to load up a piece of bread with butter take your corn wrap it in it like a blanket and roll.

  • Have fixed corn on the cob everyway imaginable and the best and easiest, in my estimation, is to put corn in bucket of water and let it soak, with husks and silks still on, for an hour or more. Then put it on the BBQ on low or medium for 45 minutes and then take off and then take off husks and silk just befor eating. Corn is not burnt and is juicy and sweet.

  • I do this camping all the time. We just take the paper down on the sticks of butter and go back and forth on the corn.
