  • 6 fresh ears of Corn on the Cob
  • 6 tablespoon Butter

  • Pull back husks from corn about half way and remove silk.
  • Fold husks back into place and soak in water for at least 10 minutes.
  • Remove corn from water and place on a heated grill over medium heat and cover with lid.
  • Rotate corn every 3-5 minutes until kernels are tender on all sides. ~15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from grill and let cool.
  • Remove husks and any remaining silk, top with butter and salt generously.


Open up the corn husks slightly during cooking if you want some kernels to char.
