Can I put husked raw corn on the cob directly on the grill (gas infrared) or should I wrap it in foil?

I would leave it in the husk, de-silked, and grill it nekkid, MsM. I don't think foil would be needed.

Ok thanks. I was hoping I could just do them husked. I am afraid the husks will be in flames (if I didn't have bad luck I wouldn't have any at all, permanent black cloud over head chance of showers always ............. which would help put out the flames BUT then again with the bad luck it might not rain .... ummmmmm )

Soak the corn (husk on) in water for about 10 minutes before tossing in on the grill. I always pull the silk so that it doesn't cause the fire department to arrive. We still have to finish fiddlehead fern and asparagus season before we get corn...because we plant heirloom varieties, we don't harvest corn until mid-late August.

Grilling them nekkid and huskless usually results in tough dried out corn. I usually leave them in the husk and de-silked as others mentioned, but you certainly could husk them and wrap them in foil if you want - or you could soak them in water with the husk on, and they won't flare up on your grill. There's so many different schools of thought on grilled corn on the cob. LOTS of great ideas here on this thread!

I LOVE grilled corn and am looking forward to the season. I just bought 8 for less than $2. Basil and butter, cilantro and lime, a good smoked paprika, the south of the border method with cheese.....OMGosh....they're all so good.

I'll be watching this thread with interest. Thanks for starting this, Kayelle.

I bought 8 ears of white corn for $1.52 (.19 ea) today. I think I will do the foil with butter, salt and pepper for 4 of them and do the soak and grill for the other 4.

Well, you are all well ahead of us! We usually don't start getting corn until at least July.

Himself hit on his favorite way, and if Himself is doing the grilling I DO NOT QUESTION!

He completely strips the ears as if I were steaming them with water, then soaks both the husks and ears (discards the silk). When he's ready to grill, he lays a good amount of the husks on the grate, puts down the ears, then covers them with more husks. Every once in a while he'll wet down the husks with more water so that the corn keeps steaming. The bottom husks will burn, but not much of an incendiary issue. When he's almost ready to pull dinner from the grill, he puts the ears in the soaking bowl after discarding water, clears all the husks off the grill, and puts the corn back down barely long enough to char some of the kernels. Turns out fine every time. Really, is there any way that is bad for corn? Well, except overcooked.

While the husk is still on the cob I use a heavy knife to cut off both ends. Then removing the husk peeling from the top down is easy. Then I cut the cob into about 2" 'rounds' like when you're cutting rounds from a tree. Then into a hot pan with clarified butter to lightly brown the kernels. Then eat them from end to end. The opposite of eating going around the cob.
This way it's possible to eat pretty much the entire kernel instead of leaving half of it still on the cob......I hope this is making sense. LOL

I had some steamed cobs left over from a previous meal and wanted to heat them. TB put them on the grill with indirect heat - they were heated through and had just a little char on them - a very tasty way to eat left-overs!
