Buttery and salty grilled corn on the cob with beautiful char marks, delicious flavor, and the best texture is the easiest recipe to throw on the grill.
- 4 medium sweet corn on the cob, husks removed
- butter (for serving)
- salt (for serving)
- Preheat the grill to high (or to 400 F).
- Place the corn on the grill and grill for 6-8 minutes, turning occasionally until nicely charred and cooked through. (You can also roast the corn in the oven at 400 F for 25 minutes or cook in boiling water for 10-15 minutes. However, grilling yields a sweeter and creamier taste).
- Spread butter on top and season with salt to taste.
For this simplified recipe, you husk the corn by completely removing the husks. But some people swear by leaving the husks on for grilling. If you prefer this, husk the corn enough to remove all the hairs, then replace the husk (don’t rip it off the end, just peel it back). If using this method, you can also soak them in water for a few minutes before grilling.
How to store: You can keep grilled corn on the cob in the fridge for 3-5. You can eat it cold or hot. To reheat, heat on the grill or in a 300 F preheated oven for 5-10 minutes until warmed through.
