I have a recipe with just that combination but never tried it. I know people who have and they love it. Since I have all the ingredients I may give it a shot tonight with one ear and see. if I like it. I'll try anything.

I have those too, but never use them. I use my hands to hold the corn.

I'll see your tacky and raise you one. Not only are corn picks (aka corn holders) standard fare at my house, we also have something called a "butter boy." It's a little plastic contraption that holds a stick of butter, and one end has a curved opening, making it easy to butter the corn by just running it along the cob. There is a plastic slide at the other end (like a push-up popsicle) to get more butter to come out the top. My mother-in-law gave it to us after we asked for it, since she had 2.

I only have the holders and only pull them out when my daughter insists.

My corn, just naked if it's fresh and no more than several hours old. Older corn, butter and salt and salt and salt.

I'm a fan of peeling back the husk, removing the silk and smearing a mix of soft butter, garlic, oregano,parm cheese, salt and pepper on the corn. Then re-cover with the husk and cook on the grill. My GF likes to serve it with the buttered slice of bread to act as a holder and butter dispenser.
Sounds like Paula Dean would approve of this!!!!!

Geez, when I said for AC to do that instead of using foil I was only kidding. I had no idea it was actually a method . Cool

This is my set, I have 4 sets, but since there are now 5 of us I need another one. Only problem is my son won't touch corn on the cob, or any type of corn!! I think there is something seriously wrong with that boy....
