Grilled Corn Recipe

This side dish tastes just like summer! And you can add any seasonings you love on corn. The corn cobs cook up deliciously with tasty grill marks all over. I’m putting corb directly on the grill – no husk, and they’re done in just 10 minutes. Ideal for cooking for a crowd.

We cooked this corn with butter, salt, and pepper, but you could add any seasonings you want. For a twist on a classic, try cayenne pepper, chopped fresh herbs, or even a sprinkle of parmesan. One of our favorite ways to serve corn is to slice it off the cob and mix it with queso fresco. Yum! Truly a BBQ delight.

How To Make Grilled Corn On The Cob

First preheat your grill while you prep the corn. Set to high heat and close the grill lid.

Place corn cobs in large mixing bowl or prep container for seasoning.

Pour a bit of olive oil into a small bowl and use a pastry brush to apply to corn cobs. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Flip the cobs over and season again.

Open lid to grill. Use BBQ tongs to place corn on grill. Reduce heat to medium or medium low and close lid.

After 5 minutes, check on the corn. Use tongs to flip corn over to new side. If necessary, turn heat down a bit.

Close grill lid and allow corn to cook for another 5 minutes. Typically corn takes about 10 minutes to cook on the grill, but it could take up to 15 minutes.

Open grill lid, and if corn is done, remove from grill. Place corn on a serving platter and turn off the heat.

  • It won’t take long to preheat the grill for corn. Just set to high and close the lid while you season the corn
  • Feel free to use any additional seasonings you like on corn
  • All grills are different- if you notice the corn burning before it is done cooking, reduce the heat
