If you’d like a great side dish for your backyard barbecue or Thanksgiving dinner, then you need to know how to grill corn. Freshly grilled corn is delicious and fun to prepare. Here how to grill corn on the cob in three easy steps.
1. Prepare the corn by removing a few layers of husk, leaving some of them on for protection. Submerge the corn in cool water for 15 minutes before grilling.
2. Heat the grill to medium and then remove the corn from the water and shake it off to get rid of the excess water. Pull back the husks to the stem without removing them, pull off the hairy silk threads, and then wrap the corn ears in the husks again. Use a piece of tin foil to wrap each ear completely and then place them on the grill. (Note: If you want to add extra flavor and seasoning, baste the ears with butter and season with salt and pepper when you remove the silk and before the corn is wrapped.)
3. Allow the corn to grill for about 15-25 minutes, depending on the temperature of the grill and how soft you like your corn, and turn it a quarter turn every 5 minutes while cooking.
4. Remove the corn from the grill and allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving.
