    I always butter em up real good and wrap them in tin foil.Toss em on the grill for a bit till they are done.

    Or, you can pull the husk down, remove the silk and butter em and pull the husk back up and toss em on the grill. It's good either way and usually don't take but 20 minutes or so to cook.

    Ya gotta do like Joe said. Do not, and I mean do not! peal the husks down and pull the silk off. Leave it on, it will all come off when you husk the cooked ear. Listen, the flavor is out of this world! I don't know why I have spent so many years husking and boiling corn? And don't say worms. I'm not sacred of them any more........ :crazy::embarassed::roll_eyes::big_smile::smile2:

    the method i learned from none other than playboys how to's.

    like smokey said. drop them in water for 1/2 hr or so. dip an old towel in water. shake but dont wring it. place the corn over coals on rack and lay towel over them. turn and re soak towel every 15 min till husks are black.

    the kernals inside should be checked once in a while by peeling down just enough to peek. kernals should get a slight brownish on tips. they almost carmelize making butter an option.:wink:

    ill be back grills warming up.:wink:

    the first step is to come and pick me and my bottle of merlot up and i will give you personal instruction on grilling corn. it isn't hard, but we may have to have a little fried corn to go along with it - you are having catfish i assume?:wink:

    Obtain your roasting ears.
    Complete your main grilling (meat)
    Place your ears on the grill on low heat. Close lid check every 5 to 10 minutes.

    Shuck husk, The silk will come off very easy. Butter, salt and pepper to taste.

    yum, yum.:wink:

    Got to agree with ya, Mickey. I have grown & tried dozens of types of corn. I have found one very true fact. The best tastin corn is stolen corn.:wink:

    I did catered pig roasts for people in the past and corn was one of the sides. I did mine by removing the silk and all leaves except for one layer. You will see the corn in some spots. Soak the ears in water for about a half hour and then grill for about 20mins turning the ears about every 5 to 8mins. Some of the grill marks will be on the corn and it looks very nice. Add butter and salt and your ready to munch. Enjoy!!! Flavored butter is good too...Use garlic and you can chum with the leftovers...if there are any :haha:
