Veggie sides and snacks are a great addition to any BBQ. Corn on the cob is one of my quintessential must-haves at any BBQ. Whether grilled in the husk providing the smokey aromas paired with the steamed and tender corn kernels or the grilled naked corncob with flames kissing each kernel providing the roasted and gently charred flavours it is most definitely one of my favourites.

Corn is also one of those fun snacks you can have at any time of the day, especially with kids. And you can experiment with a combination of toppings beyond butter, salt and pepper. You'll love trying these on our Master-Touch Charcoal Grill for that added wow factor!

TIPS FOR THE CORN OF YOUR LIFE

Follow these golden tips to ensure your next corn BBQ is easy and enjoyable:

  1. When grilling corn 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.
  2. Soak 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. Then grill the corn with the husk on over indirect medium heat for 35-40 minutes.
  3. Wash the corn before grilling, dry well and then brush with oil to prevent burning or sticking to the grill.
  4. Use heat-resistant oils only, such as sunflower or rapeseed oil.
  5. Add salt to your corn only after they are grilled, otherwise they dry out quickly.
  6. The Weber Corn holder, a pair of tongs and gloves ensure a safe and practical experience.
