I can still remember the first time I tasted grilled corn on the cob. It was a 4th of July barbecue in Cedarburg, Wisconsin.  The fire department had giant grills filled with corn-on-the-cob. To serve they just pulled back the husks, dipped it in a can of melted butter, sprinkled it with salt. Try my simple grilled corn recipe. Truly amazing!

This is a super easy side dish for any type of barbecue.  + the topping options are endless.  Set-up a corn topping station and let everyone get creative!

The best way to make corn, in my opinion, is on the grill. + it's so simple and easy, requires no prep and topping options are endless.  My favorite way to eat this is with just a couple of grind of salt and pepper - no butter.  Buy corn at its peak for the best results.  See 10 amazing toppings for corn on the cob.



  • 8 Ears of corn in the husk
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Soak corn in husks in a tub of water for about an hour.
  2. Cook corn on a hot grill, I want my grill to be between 450 and 500 degrees, turn the corn occasionally, until cooked through and it is well charred on all sides, about 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. Serve immediately.
  4. Have a grilling mitt handy, to pull back the husk and remove as much silk as possible.

  5. Top with salt, pepper and maybe butter.  You decide.
