Corn on the Cob Recipe

Here is how to cook corn on the cob on the barbecue.

The first step to making good quality barbecue corn on the cob, is to choose good fresh corn:
  • Get the freshest possible corn - and eat it within one day.
  • You need to buy corn with the husks on it. The husks help keep the corn fresh, but are also necessary for the barbecue cooking process.
  • Examine the husks. If the corn is fresh, the leaves should be green and pliable, and the silk should be dry not soggy.
Here are the ingredients for corn on the cob:
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Butter
  • Optional: Seasonings (salt), lemon juice, or hot sauce
Here is how to cook barbecued corn on the cob:
  1. Cut away excess silk from the corn cobs (but do not remove the husk).

  2. You need to thoroughly soak the corn cobs. You can do this by placing them in a large pot or bucket of clean water. Since the corn will tend to float, put something on top of them to hold them down. Soak the corn for atleast 30 minutes.

  3. When the corn has been thoroughly soaked, you can remove the from the water, being sure to drain away excess water.

    Set up your barbecue grill, and cook:

    • If using a gas grill, you will need to cook for approximately 10 to 15 minutes on a medium-high setting. You may need to turn the corn about every 5 minutes to avoid charring it.

    • If using a charcoal grill, you will need to cook for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, with the lid on.

    Important Notes on Cooking the Corn on the Corn:

    • The cooking time may vary depending on your particular grill, and on how soft you want your corn.

    • The outside of the corn husk may become brown or charred, but provided you soaked your corn enough, and you turn it regularly, the inside corn itself inside should just be nicely steamed.

  4. When the corn has been cooked, you can remove it from your grill using tongs (be careful - it will be hot).

  5. The husk can be removed from the corn by peeling like a banana (but the corn will be too hot to hold directly). You can put the corn under running water and use a dish towel to hold it. The running water can also be used to help remove any charred silk or husk from the corn.

  6. The corn can be served with butter, salt, lemon juice, hot sauce, or whatever combination of these suits you.
