One of the best sides to have with your dinner is grilled corn on the cob. Grilling the corn gives it a much different and better taste than cooking the corn on the stove. If you don’t know how to grill corn but want to give it a try, keep reading for some helpful tips.
Grilling Without the Husk
First you will need to shuck the ears of corn and then clean the corn. If there are tiny pieces of silk left behind, don’t let that bother you. You can leave them alone and they’ll cook off while the corn is grilling.
Get your grill nice and hot and place the corn on the grill rack. Turn the corn occasionally to grill all sides of it. It should take about 10 minutes or so to completely cook the corn through on the grill. Remove the corn from the grill and serve with butter.
Grilling in the Husk
For this method, you don’t worry about shucking the corn, you just put the corn husk and all on the grill. Get the grill hot and place the corn in the husk on the grill rack and turn it occasionally to cook it through completely. This should probably take about 15 minutes. The husk will turn black, but the corn inside will be nice and moist from the steam inside the husk. Remove the corn from the grill, let it cool a bit, and then remove the husk and eat with butter.
Grilling with Foil
Shuck the corn and wrap it in aluminum foil. Set the foil wrapped corn on the grill and let it cook, turning it occasionally, for about 15 minutes. Then remove from the grill, remove the foil, and eat with butter. For added flavor, you can coat the corn in butter before wrapping it in the foil so the butter flavor will cook into it.
