My last post today is about grilled corn because it should be a staple at every Labor Day BBQ.
Last week I posted on Facebook about corn. Many people either like to grill it or want to learn how. I will admit that grilled corn is not a staple in our house and I just grilled it for the first time EVER. It was a little scary. I tried it a few different ways, from in the husk to cobs directly on the grill to cobs in foil on the grill. I learned one important trick: to soak your corn in water for at least 30 minutes before grilling. After all, you don’t want to have your corn go up in a blaze! My personal favorite is in foil. Surprise, surprise. What’s your favorite grilling method?
Whatever method you choose, you’ll definitely get a yummy piece of corn that has an extra punch of flavor from the grill. My hope this that this labor day, you’ll be brave like me and give this a try! It was really great! Enjoy!
Grilled Corn in Foil
- ½ to 1 tbs. butter per cob
- Salt and pepper
- Preheat grill to Med-high
- Lay a cleaned piece of corn on a piece of heavy-duty foil. If you don’t have heavy duty, use a few pieces.
- Rub butter; yes, real butter not the fake stuff all over the surface of the corn.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Securely seal the foil on both ends and the top. You will have to turn the corn during cooking and don’t want the butter to leak out.
- Place on grill and turn every 5 minutes for about 20 minutes.
- Be careful when opening, they will be steamy and oh so yummy!
