Grilled Corn Recipe

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 firemen were grilling ears of corn for the crowd. They had giant barrels of corn soaking in water and a giant grill filled with corn. They would pull them off the grill, dip them in a can of melted butter, sprinkle with salt and then hand it over to be consumed. It was amazing.
