How To Properly Grill Corn On The Cob
We are in the full swing of BBQ season. Have you ever tried to put corn on the cob on the grill? Were you afraid to cook it that way because you didn't know what you were doing with it? Here's a few tips and tricks on how to grill corn on the cob. We even have a recipe too.
First off, don't be afraid to try and grill the corn. There's no exact way voted by chefs that works the best. Meaning, do you grill it in the husks, or out of the husks? What people do agree on is how to prep it first though:
Boil the ears for 10 minutes, not a second longer. Add a pinch of sugar to the water, or a splash of milk, to bring out flavor. Cover in plastic wrap and zap in the microwave."
Our friends over at AZ Central posted two different ways you can grill. Choose the one that you think will work best:
Grilled corn with husks
Prep: Peel back the husks, but don't detach. Remove the silk. Smooth the husks back over corn. Soak the corn in water for at least an hour.
Grilling: Heat to medium and place corn on grill. Cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally. Peel off husks. Return corn to grill and cook on high heat for about 5 minutes, or until some kernels turn black.
Grilled corn without husks
Prep: Peel corn and remove all the silks. Lightly coat ears with extra-virgin olive oil or butter. Lightly dust with sea or kosher salt. Or boil for 2-3 minutes to soften kernels before oiling and grilling.
Grilling: Heat grill to medium-high and place corn on grill. Grill uncovered for 5-10 minutes, turning frequently as kernels turn black."
