Grilled Corn on the Cob

I’m back!  Did you miss me?  I haven’t blogged in such a long time.  It seems like I go through spurts of trying new things out and blogging a ton then I go through a dry spell.  I am inspired though now that it’s summertime and I”m ready to make all sorts of yummy new things!

Last night Tommy and I decided to chill out and grill out at home instead of going out.  It was a perfect night for it and everything was so yummy!  I grilled chicken for me, sausage for him, AND I decided to try grilling out corn on the cob.  It seemed like it would be pretty easy and would be super easy since I was already standing at the grill anyway  🙂  I really didn’t have a clue how to even go about it but turns out it’s even easier than I thought!  Here is how I did it even though I think there are about a million ways it can be done:

Cut the excess tassles off the end of the cob and took off the loose husks.  I submerged completely the ears in a sink full of water for about 20 minutes.  Shake off excess water.  I then peeled back the husks and put butter, some garlic, and salt and pepper on the corn and pulled the husks back up.  I wrapped the ears tightly in foil.  Place them on a grill heated to medium high heat (I have a gas grill) for about 30-35 mintues.  You have to turn the ears about every 3-5 minutes so that it doesn’t char.  When you take the ears out of the foil the husks will most likely look charred somewhat and that is how they are supposed to look.  It will be HOT so make sure you use a dish towel or potholder to peel the husks off to eat.  Butter it up and eat it!  YUM! 

Pig Rating:  The Pig really liked this!  I only grilled it for about 30 minutes.  It could have been on for 35 so it was a little tough, but almost perfect.  🙂

Mrs. Pig Rating:  YUM!  I’m definitely going to start doing this more.  So easy and yummy and perfect for a summer time grill out!

    Julie – Thanks! I”m hoping to get back into the swing of things so stay tuned! 🙂

  4. I”m glad you tried & liked it. I’m bummed that corn proves itself to be a headache producer for me. Corn on the cob was always one of the hallmarks of summer and I’ll miss it terribly.
