Here's a great way to enjoy fresh grilled roasted corn on the cob made easy right off your grill.
First, clean that corn! Cut off excess silk hanging from the end and remove loose husk. Completely submerse all of the corn you will be cooking under water. This will provide extra moisture for cooking. Let the ears of corn soak for at least 15 minutes prior to cooking.
While your corn is soaking, prepare the grill. Heap enough charcoal to evenly cover the bottom grate into a pile in the center. If you don't have Matchlight charcoal, soak your charcoal with charcoal lighter fluid and light.
Let it burn until the briquettes are lightly coated with gray ash. Once this happens, the flames should be down and you are ready to cook.
Place the cooking grate onto the grill Remove the corn from the water and pour out any excess. Place the corn on the grill and cover. (Turn and rotate the corn every 2-3 minutes)
If you are using a gas grill, keep the heat on med-high and turn the ears every 5 minutes. If you don't turn them enough, the corn will char. The ears will turn brown and might even catch on fire - this is fine, let them cook. Just be sure to turn them often. The water that you soaked them in is steaming them inside the husks. After you do this a couple of times you will get a feel for the right appearance.
Remove the corn from the grill with tongs, it's very hot! Grasping one end with a dish towel, peel the silk and leaves from the top down. The husks should come off in one piece. Ashes may get on the corn, this is ok.
If the corn is too hot to handle, do this part in the sink under warm running water. Once you've removed most of the silk, rinse the corn under warm running water and any excess ash and silk should wash right off.
Many people like to melt the butter first and mix in garlic and other spices...or, just stick to salt and butter. Whatever you like! You can also shake on some Jake's Southwestern Hickory Rub to give it the New Mexican flavor.
To make handling the corn a lot easier you can buy those little corn cob holders which plug into the ends of the corn cob.
Serve and Enjoy your home made corn! This is a great recipe that Mom's, Dad's and kids of all sizes will love.
