Grilled Corn on the Cob
Being without a kitchen does make one rethink how to cook dinner! It is the season for fresh corn and we did not want to miss it! I usually cook corn on the cob in a large pot of boiling water. Never again. I have had grilled corn before but don't usually make it this way.
I know you can grill corn by soaking it, pulling out the silks and grilling right in the husks. But I thought grilling in foil sounded easier and safer- I didn't want any fires!
Anyway, such an easy way to make corn but the realy draw is the flavor. So incredibly sweet and flavorful!
Husk and clean corn cob.
Place on large square of foil. Rub with butter and season with salt, pepper and perhaps a sprinkling of some smoky BBQ rub or simply some smoked paprika.
Place on Med hot grill and cook, turning every 4-5 minutes, for about 20-26 minutes. The time depends on the size of the kernals and the freshness of the corn. Turning often ensures less browning. Open one foil after 20 minutes. If the corn is brighter in color and it smells done it is ready to come off the grill.It should not be overly soft as grilled corn tends to firmer on the outside when it is done.
This corn can be kept warm in foil while you grilled the rest of dinner. Do be careful, it is very hot! Let it cool once it is open
