We pull back the husk, remove the silks, put the husk back and grill them for 10 minutes or so, too, then add the butter and S&P after cooking.

I don't do anything. I take the corn, husk, silk and all and put it on the grill over direct heat as is. I do not soak it or anything. I turn the corn every few minutes or so. The husk will char and get back. That is what you want. I let it go for 15-20 minutes or so. Take it off the grill and take off the husk and silk which will just slide right off. If you are lucky then some of the kernels will have taken on some color. The corn will have a slight smoky taste too.

The only problem with this way is that your hands need to be made of asbestos or you need to let the corn cool a bit before you attempt to take the husk and silk off.

I was going to mention that. Since I eat the corn last, sometimes I let it rest on the porch railing and you still have to be fast with your husking. Or at least after you peal and you grab the husks and twist them off. Youch.

I used to do the soak and roast in the husk thing. Now I clean the corn down and drop it on the grill naked. It cook up just fine. Juicy, sweet and no hot husk to deal with.
