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!
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
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).
And just because I couldn't resist, here are a few pictures of the rest of our grilled dinner:
first the brussel sprouts...
