Dixie Grilled Corn

You start off by pulling the shucks back and remove the corn silks. You then rub the corn with mayonnaise ( Dukes Mayonnaise If Possible) being sure to get all the corn kernels covered with the mayonnaise. Then you pull the shucks back up over the corn and then your ready to grill it.

Corn is grilled like this all the time all over the American south and people just love it. Try serving Dixie Grilled Corn with barbecued chicken. Oh man that's some good eating.

Some of the best grilled corn in the world can be made with the recipe in this video.

Time Saving Tip.

For a quick addition to grilled meals, cook corn on the cob in the husks. Remove all but the innermost layer of husks, snip off the silk tassel with kitchen shears or scissors, and place the ears on the grill; cook turning it often, until you see the silhouette of the kernels through the husk, and the husk begins to pull away from the tip of the ear.

There is a really great recipe for grilled corn in this video. I hope you get to try it real soon.

Bacon Wrapped Grilled Corn

Have you ever had bacon wrapped grilled corn. If not then you should real soon. You want to start off by pulling the shucks off your corn and remove the silks. Soak the corn overnight in the refrigerator soaked down with liquid Italian Dressing.

The next day shake off the excess Italian Dressing and wrap each ear of corn with bacon securing the bacon with a toothpick or two to keep the bacon in place. I like to use applewood bacon because I think it has the best flavor.

Cook the bacon wrapped corn on a grill over indirect heat until the corn is done and the bacon is crisp. With indirect heat you build a charcoal fire in your grill on one side and let the grill heat up. You then cook the corn on the side where the charcoal fire is not. I think you will find that this is truly some of the best grilled corn you will ever taste. Everyone I've ever made it for says its oh so delicious.

Bacon wrapped corn is delicious with barbecued chicken or steamed shrimp. Hell I like to eat it by its self. And if you try it I bet you will to.

Have you ever had grilled corn on the cob?

Let me tell you a little bit about grilled corn on the cob. First of all you need to find it fresh in the grocery store or farmers market. The shucks on the corn need to be crisp and the silks underneath loose and not stuck to the corn. Your fresh corn should smell like fresh corn. You should pull back the shucks on the ears you are purchasing to make sure your corn is of the best quality possible. Its important that you get plump fresh kernels that shoot out juice if you press down on one with your fingernail.

The fresher your corn is the better it will taste when you grill it. I like my corn grilled. Just make sure to remove all the silks and then pull the shucks back up over your ears of corn before you grill them.

Italian Dressing Is A Great Way To Make Delicious Grilled Corn.

Now here's where it gets important. To make the best grilled corn on the cob add one cup of Italian Dressing to a gallon of water and soak your corn in the shucks in the water that has the Italian Dressing added to it. Before you do this though you need to open up the corn shucks and remove all the silks from your corn. Pull the corn shucks back up over the corn and now your ready to soak your ears of corn in the Italian Dressing / Water bath. If you can soak your corn on the cob in the shucks at least four hours.

Its important that your grill be already heated on about medium heat before you place your corn in the shucks on the grill. Be sure that your grill is not to hot or you will end up with burned corn. If you find your corn is getting to hot and burning you can then wrap each cob of corn in tin foil and put it back on the grill. Corn on the Cob in the shucks should cook done on a medium heat grill in about an hour. If you wrap your corn on the cob in tin foil you want to grill it for a while on the grill to get a good grilled flavor before you do wrap the corn in tin foil.

Corn cooked this way is excellent served right on the cob with plenty of fresh butter and a handy shaker of ground sea salt. Grilled Corn on the Cob is excellent with almost any grilled meats. Try your grilled corn with various grilled meats to see what you like. I myself love grilled corn with grilled Italian Sausage. But it is also delicious with grilled chicken breast or grilled chicken thighs. Try it with various grilled meats to find your favorite.

Have you ever had grilled corn on the cob. How did you like it. What is your favorite thing to serve it with. Why not tell us all about it below in the comment section now.

If you have not yet had ground sea salt give it a try especially on grilled foods like grilled corn on the cob. Its much better than regular table salt and the taste is just wonderful. Its also much more nutritious than regular table salt.

Some people like to cook their corn on the cob in the shucks wrapped in tinfoil right from the start. You can try sprinkling a little bit of brown sugar on your corn in the shucks for a little added sweetness. When you cook it in the tin foil it steams your corn and you want to be sure not to overcook your corn on the cob.

If you have freshly grown basil you can try chopping up some fine and placing it inside the corn shucks for a delightful added flavor. Or you can puree fresh chopped basil and butter together in a food processor to make fresh basil butter which will be oh so delicious on fresh ears of grilled corn.

How About Dixie Grilled Corn.

Have you ever heard of making Dixie Grilled Corn by spreading your corn with Dukes Mayonnaise and then grilling your corn. You'll find that corn grilled this way will have a delicious unique flavor that most people love. If you've never had grilled corn cooked this way give it a try.

Rescue For Corn Past Its Prime

To cook corn on the cob that's a day or so past its prime or older than it should be, add a tablespoon of sugar, rather than salt, to the boiling water. Salt toughens corn kernels but sugar helps restore some of the natural sweetness. Bring the water to a boil, and add the corn; after the water returns to a boil, cook three more minutes.

      I have not tried grilling corn on the cob. But it made sense that it would taste delicious because mostly food that were cooked and wrapped with leaves taste great. I could remember rice cake (wrapped w/ banana leaves) & hanging rice (wrapped in coconut leaves).

      Great hub. Voted up.
