How to Grill "Naked" Sweet Corn on the Cob
'Naked' grilled sweet corn on the cob is a perfect veggie for your backyard cookout. Keep your clothes on - the corn is naked not you. This is not "corn porn". With this recipe you are going to have to be more hands on than if you were grilling the corn in the husk, so that the sweet corn cooks evenly but does not get over-done. The first step is to remove the husks from your corn and clean off the silk. You can leave the corn whole or cut it into smaller pieces. Place the corn on the cob on a hot grill. Watch it carefully and turn occasionally with tongs so the corn cooks evenly with a nice light char. It will take about 10 minutes. This method won't be quite as moist as our recipe with the husk on but the corn on the cob will have a nice smoky flavor.
