Grilling Corn on the Cob is Easy!

Grilled vegetable recipes don't get much easier then grilling corn on the cob.

The heat from the BBQ carmelizes the sugars in a corn cob and brings out a true sweet, smoky flavor.

Whenever someone asks me how to grill corn I immediately point them to this easy recipe.

It's a nice change from just boiling corn on the stove.

Some folks soak the cobs, husk and all, in water then put them on the grill that way. Others wrap them in foil first then cook them.

All pretty good ideas but I've found with this recipe the preparation is minimal and while you're busy with the main dish you can just give each cob a spin now and then to cook all sides.

Once the corn is cooked consider using one of the flavored butters like the Garlic Tarragon butter recipe on the website.
