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!
Simple Grilled Corn
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.
Soak corn in husks in a tub of water for about an hour.
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.
Have a grilling mitt handy, to pull back the husk and remove as much silk as possible.
Top with salt, pepper and maybe butter. You decide.
Try topping with:
Cayenne pepper and a squeeze of lime
Olive oil, minced garlic, and parmesan cheese
Pesto and crushed red pepper
