Sweet Summer Corn Tips

Sweet Summer Corn Tips

When grilling corn I like to pull the husk back about 3/4 of the way and pull the silk.  Easy tip for pulling the silk is use a rubber band on the corn.  The friction pulls the small pieces of silk off and cleans it all off perfectly. I also like to soak my corn for 2-3 hours in ice cold water with a couple tablespoons of sugar. This adds some moisture back into the corn which gives you top notch results.   I then grill the corn with the husk on over indirect medium heat for 35-40 minutes.

I also love to grill Corn on The Cob. My technique is a bit different (and maybe a little less work?).

Don't bother with peeling back the husk to remove the silk. Just simply remove any visible silk and any of the "dangly leaves" at the top of the ear. You can soak the corn in water or go directly to the grill without soaking. Cook over medium direct heat turning the ears every 10 - 12 minutes until each ear is a bit charred on the outside.

Now, remove the corn from the grill and hold the corn on the stalk end. Peel back the husk and most of the silk comes with it. Any little bit of silk that is still there is easily removed. Salt and butter is all you need at this point to enjoy a deliciously grilled ear of corn.
