Grilled Corn on the Cob

Here's an ideal way to grill fresh corn on the cob and have it hot, pre-buttered and ready to eat, whether at a cookout away from home (as described in Memorial Day Cookout) or cooking in your own backyard.

  • 8 medium ears corn, husked and desilked, with ends trimmed
  • 8 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  1. Combine butter, salt and pepper, and mix well.
  2. Center each ear of corn on a square of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Liberally spread surface of ears of corn with butter mixture. Fold in ends of aluminum foil and roll up ears of corn.
  3. Corn may be placed on the grill for 10 to 12 minutes, with grill lid down, or directly on the coals and turned frequently for about 8 minutes.
  4. Serves up to eight.

Note: You want to use the freshest corn available, so don't remove the husks until you are ready to cook. Nature beats plastic wrap every time.
