How to make it

  • Soak the ears of corn in cool water for about two hours.
  • Remove any excess silks or "stray" husks.
  • Place on a preheated bbq grill on low or in indirect heat.
  • Cook for about 35 minutes, turning with tongs every 5 minutes. Keeping the lid closed.
  • The outer husks will get black and ashy but don't worry, inside will be steamy and sweet.
  • Remove all the husks and silks (which are now steamed and will come off very easily).
  • Serve with butter, salt and pepper or like I eat it, just hot and right off the cob.
  • NOTE: If you time it right your grilled meat will be done just about the same time.

    Our corn didn't grill all the way in 35 minutes, so we ended up boiling the ears for a few minutes after grilling. We grilled the chicken first, then kept it warm in the oven. I wonder if our coals were no longer hot enough, OR if we over stuffed the grill?? We tried to grill more than six ears at a time. Is that where we went wrong??

    mbalmr, I hope you enjoy the corn! I have been so busy the past couple of weeks that I haven't cooked much of anything!

    I'm going to try this tonight on my step-pigs, who requested corn on the cob with dinner. We're grilling chicken leg quarters anyway. I was really worried about the silk, but I feel better now. Thanks for an informative post for a novice like me!!! I'm nost grateful!
