It’s finally corn on the cob season. It’s early in the season, but there is corn on the cob available nonetheless. I bought some at the vegetable stand that I pass on the way home from church.
For several years I’ve talked about grilling corn on the cob on my Traeger, but we have always ended up deciding just to boil it instead. “We know it’s good boiled,” we’d always say. But this week I decided it was time to finally try grilling it. It turned out pretty good, and I bet it will be even better later in the year when the corn is sweeter.
I forgot to take pictures, but wanted to share the recipe anyway.
Grilled Corn on the Cob
Corn on the cob
Olive oil or melted butter
Peel husks of the corn down, leaving it attached at the bottom of the cob. Remove all the corn silk and rinse the ears. Rub each ear of corn with olive oil or melted butter, and sprinkle with salt. Pull the husks back up over the corn cobs. Wrap the cobs in heavy aluminum foil, adding ¼ to ½ cup of water to the packet. Place packet on the Traeger (or other grill) at 350° and cook for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from grill, open packet, and carefully remove husks from hot corn cobs. I actually used kitchen scissors to cut the husks away.
Serve with additional butter, if desired. Enjoy with your other favorite grilled items.
