Grilled Corn

I discovered how to do this during one of the many heat waves of this summer.  I just couldn't turn on the stove top or oven again...too hot!!!  So why not grill?  I've tried other grilling methods, but this was by far the most successful.  Super easy, no fuss, no clean up.  It doesn't get better!  So when corn is in season, give this one a try!  I happened to make the entire dinner on the grill - grilled corn, grilled brussel sprouts, and BLTs (with bacon done on the grill).  So delicious and my favorite summertime meal!

Happy Cooking!
Grilled Corn
original recipe
4+ fresh ears of corn on the cobb, (however many you want), cleaned, husked and silks removed
1 cold stick of butter (don't worry - you don't use but 1-2 T for 4 ears, but it has to be cold)
salt and pepper to taste
aluminum foil

Take each ear of corn, rub it with the butter, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Wrap each ear individually with foil (doubling hte foil if you don't have heavy duty foil). 
Place the corn on a pre-heated grill over medium heat.  Allow the corn to cook for a total of 20-30 minutes, turning every 5-10 minutes so it cooks evenly on all sides.

You can see I cooked the bacon in a disposable pan on the grill too - also no mess and no clean up...a bacon lovers' dream come true!  Just watch the bacon closely, as it could burn quite easily as it begins to cook through.

Serve the corn immediately.  Even my kids loved it!  Enjoy!!!

And just because I couldn't resist, here are a few pictures of the rest of our grilled dinner:
first the brussel sprouts...
and then these delicious gourmet BLTs on specialty bread with fresh tomatoes from our garden.

YUMMY!!!  In my opinion, one of the best meals of the summer, even if its not the lightest.
