Perfect Grilled Corn

grilled-corn192

Crisp, sweet, with a little charring, grilled corn is one of the best things about summer.  The direct contact with high heat of the grates over an open flame concentrates and starts to caramelize the corn’s sugars which intensify the flavor.  It’s also very easy to do.

I like my corn (like most vegetables) al dente – or as I like to say, not overcooked.  No need to boil ahead, wrap in foil, soak the husks, etc.  Set your grill for direct medium heat.  Shuck ‘em.  Scrub ‘em.  Grill ‘em for 4 minutes per side (there are four sides).  Use the grates to keep them from rolling around.  They should look like this:

Eat them right off the grill — add some butter and salt or try this Chili-Lime Butter from JeffParkerCooks.com.

Cheers and Happy Grilling!

  1. I have a question for Support.

    Can I place the metal pieces that are just above the fire in the self cleaning oven in my house to clean? They get really caked and need cleaning.

    • Hello Kurt –

      Here’s the low-down on putting grill parts in a self-cleaning oven from Bull’s service department:

      “I do not recommend using a Self Cleaning Oven for cleaning the grill parts. Using a Self Cleaning oven does make a lot of smoke in a home and can cause smoke alarms and interior sprinklers to be engaged.”

      I hope this helps.
      Cheers and Happy Grilling!
      Jeff
