  1. I had several ears of corn so I did it both this way AND the way the other comments suggest with leaving the husks on. I soaked all corn, husked half and wrapped in foil with butter, and the other half I just placed directly on the charcoal grill. Aside from the mess of husking - Read more ...
  2. Everyone when rating this review actually talks about a completely different method of cooking the corn, and then gives it 5 stars. I don't get it. I'm reviewing this exact recipe. I didn't soak the corn. I didn't do anything. I peeled the husks back, put butter and salt on it, wrapped them in foil, - Read more ...
  3. The only thing I do different is I soak my corn in water first then I use strips of the husk to tie the husk around the corn and grill I omit the foil that way the corn can get more of the flavor of the grill while cooking and the pre soak in cold - Read more ...
  4. I followed the advise of the other reviews and soaked the corn in water with the husks on for an hour then grilled them for 1/2 hour, turning every 5 mins. they turned out PERFECT. but had nothing to do with the original recipe.
  5. I took off the silk of the corn and submerged the corn (with the shuck still on) in water for a couple of hours. I then pulled back the shuck just enough to brush on some melted butter with seasoned salt. I put the shuck back over the corn and covered it tightly with foil( - Read more ...

Dip an old bath towel in water, wring it out until it no longer drips. Place over the corn. - Read more ...
  7. Simple and delicious. Tip: A friend of mine convinced me to NOT bother removing the silk before cooking - said "Once it's done, you just grab it from the top before husking, and it all comes out in one piece!" I was skeptical - but he was RIGHT!!
  8. There are few things that scream "SUMMER" like grilled corn on the cob. I do mine a little differntly than this however, and it is fantastic! First of all, DO NOT remove the husks - they are vital to the flavor and cooking process. Only peel a little bit back to make sure you do - Read more ...
  9. The corn was excellent...sweet and juicy. For some of you who had trouble getting your corn done quick enough,here's a hint that applies to any food that's wrapped in foil. In this case, wrap the corn-on-the-cob with the shiny side in. This keeps the heat in and helps to cook faster. With the shiny side - Read more ...
