How do you grill your corn on the cob....

do you just take the silk out, butter, s&p, put the husk back on and go for it?
How long does it take?
Direct heat right?
Lighting the grill soon (charcoal)
HELP!
thanks.

I break the end silk off, leave everything else intact, and toss it over a medium/low flame. I'm not sure how that equates to charcoal. Maybe 350 degrees on my lid thermometer. Rotate 180 the first time, then 90, then 180 again, so all the husk gets "color". And yes, the husk will turn black, but don't worry about it. Also, I have the lid down most of the time, but not towards the end, unless whatever else I am cooking requires the lid be down, then sometimes I will switch the corn to indirect if I think it's done. It takes somewhere between 25 minutes and 45 minutes..... It is one of those things I never pay attention to time anymore. The kernels are plump, juicy, and maybe just a few starting to turn goldish brown. No soaking necessary either. It's one of those things you usually have to do a couple times to get a feel for.

I do the same as pacanis. Sometime I do soak, not always. It is so good. I usually turn about every 15 minutes if directly on coals.

Yes you can, but it is a lot trickier.
Baste them with butter as they cook (I season the butter with minced garlic, s&p and sometimes Italian seasoning). The kernels generally come out a bit drier grilling them this way, but it's still good.

i like them raw if really fresh and sweet.

second best way imo is to pull the husks down, remove the silk, pull the husk back up, then grill. by opening them up, you get more smoke and a little more browning inside.

finally, boiled for just a few minutes. not too long, or it's just mush.

Suzie, do it just like they do it at the state fair or farmers market. Put it right on the grill, as is, probably 10 - 20 minutes. Turning quarter turn, every so often, I do it all the time, yum.

Exactly as you said. Keep it moving or the husk will ignite from the dripping butter. It usually takes about 10 minutes.

I've got to get mine ready for tonight!
