How to Grill Corn on the Cob With The Husk
While many people will enjoy grilling all summer long and for those
warriors of us even into the middle of winter you will want to learn
how to grill corn on the cob. I know that for me I took my time on
learning how to grill corn on the cob and did have to take many ears of
corn before I finally found my perfect method that worked for me and my
grill. Some people though are still asking how to grill corn on the cob
and here is the method that I found that worked out best for me when I
grill corn on the cob.
The first step that I do as I do with any of my food is to clean the food properly. While I am cleaning the corn and preparing it for the task of becoming grilled corn on the cob I make sure to remove all of the silk. Now this is a very important thing that you do because you are going to want to make sure that you remove all of the silk because that can lead to your grilled corn on the cob becoming fire on the cob instead!
The second step that I do while I am getting my corn ready to be grilled is I take and pull the husk back up over the corn cob. Depending on if you like butter or not you will want to put butter inside of the husk during this step. Which I know that for me I usually have my grilled corn on the cob lathered heavily in butter.
Then after I have gotten all of my corn cobs cleaned up and prepped for grilling I will take the corn on the cob and wrap them in aluminum foil. Now this might seem like a step that some people will want to skip, but I do not recommend that because the aluminum foil will help keep the heat inside of the corn on the cob during the grilling process.
After wrapping the corn in aluminum foil I take it out to my grill. Now you will want to make sure that you already have your grill warmed up to have the perfect grilled corn on the cob. I know that for my grill it typically takes about ten minutes before the grilled corn on the cob is done. Then after the corn is done cooking you will want to take a pair of tongs to remove the corn on the cob from the grill. You will also use the tongs to place the corn on the cob on the grill as well.
Then when the corn has cooled enough you can enjoy some great grilled corn on the cob. I know this is the method that I use to make my family grilled corn on the cob and they enjoy having the corn on the cob this way rather than any other methods that I have used.
