My grilled corn on the cob recipe

1) Pull back husk and remove the silk. You can thin out some of the husk but DO NOT remove it entirely!

2) Get all porno on the ear with margarine (not butter, as vegetable oils work better in this heat than dairy fats) and season with any of the following: salt & pepper, Old Bay, or Tony Chachere's.

3) Restore husk to original position. This will allow the corn to cook a bit via steam before being finished off from the flames of the grill.

4) Place on hot charcoal (or gas, if you must) grill, turning every so often.

5) Allow the husks to burn off completely.

6) Turn the naked ears regularly to get a nice caramelization and serve with butter or margarine.

I'm glad that you liked it. I perfected my approach one summer in the early part of the last decade before Iraq and Katrina drove up the gas prices as, as a result, the cost of corn. It was dirt cheap and I was in grad school, so I grilled it almost every night.

I would rather the recipe not be reposted verbatim, but a description/summary and a link would be cool.

Troll through some of my older posts. There are some recipes that you may or may not also like from 07 and 08.
