grilled corn on the cob-
This easy recipe for corn on the cob is amazing. The corn is grilled with a charred taste, smothered in butter and season. The perfect side dish for all your summer grilling!
should I grill corn with or without the husk?
You can do either and it really is a personal preference! This recipe is without husks and our corn with creamy spread is grilled with husks.
WITHOUT HUSKS- Grilling the corn in the husks with gives the corn a smoky and charred taste. Remove the husks and silk from the corn before placing onto the grill.
WITH HUSKS- Grilling the corn with husks takes a few minutes longer but the corn isn’t as charred and is a bit juicier. Remove outer layer of husks before adding corn to a grill.
IN FOIL- You can also grill the corn wrapped in foil. This keeps the corn from the charred taste but you still get the grilled corn taste.
TIPS on grilling corn-
Grilling corn is extremely easy. Here are some tips to get the juiciest corn on the cob, perfect for family grilling or a barbecue.
HEAT- You want to keep the heat at a medium. Cooking at high heat will burn the corn yet it’ll be hard and undercooked.
WATER- Some people like to submerge corn into the water before adding to the grill. I’ve tried with and without water and can’t say I see a huge difference.
BUTTER- Generously buttering the corn as it comes off the grill is the key to the juiciest corn.
SEASON- Though corn is naturally sweet, and the butter adds flavor, seasoning the corn just takes it over the top and the perfect finish. Once you give seasoned corn a try, you’ll never serve corn unseasoned.
