Instead of the same old boiled sweet corn on the cob try grilling.


  • Fresh sweet corn in husk
  • Water
  • Butter, softened
  • Garlic salt or onion salt (optional)


  1. preheat the grill to 350F.
  2. Loosen the husk around the corn but do not remove.
  3. Place the corn in a pot of cold water (enough to cover corn). Let soak for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove corn from water. Peel back the husk to remove the silk.
  5. Apply the softened butter to the corn kernels.
  6. This is an optional step but lightly sprinkle the corn with garlic or onion salt.
  7. Rewrap the husks around the corn. If the husks don’t stay around the corn, you can use kitchen string to close them at the tip of the corn.
  8. Place the corn over direct heat on the grill. Char the husks lightly using tongs to turn them (about a minute on each side).
  9. Put corn on an area of indirect heat or an upper grill shelf.
  10. Close grill and leave for about 15 minutes. Be careful – overcooking can cuse the corn to be mushy.
  11. Serve immediately.
