Introduction

Arrow

Choose fresh ears of corn with bright green husks and plump kernels. For the best flavor, opt for corn that's in season and locally grown.

Selecting the Corn

Arrow

Peel back the husks of each ear of corn, but leave them attached at the base. Remove the silk (corn hair) and then fold the husks back over the corn to cover it.

Husking the Corn

Arrow

For extra moisture and to prevent the husks from burning on the grill, soak the corn in cold water for 10-15 minutes before grilling. This step is optional but can help keep the corn juicy.

Soaking

Arrow

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, around 350-400°F (175-200°C). Clean the grates and lightly oil them to prevent the corn from sticking.

Preparing the Grill

Arrow

Place the prepared ears of corn directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and grill for about 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally, until the corn is tender and lightly charred on all sides.

Grilling the Corn

Arrow

For added flavor, brush the corn with melted butter or olive oil during grilling. You can also sprinkle the corn with salt, pepper, or your favorite herbs and spices for extra seasoning.

Flavor Enhancements

Arrow

To test for doneness, pierce the kernels with a fork. They should be tender but still slightly firm to the bite.

Checking for Doneness

Arrow

Once the corn is grilled to perfection, remove it from the grill and transfer it to a serving platter. Serve hot with additional butter.
