How to grill corn on the cob
While it’s common to grill shucked corn either in foil with butter or directly on the grill, there’s a third method that can be a real timesaver. If you’re busy preparing a lot of dishes for your meal, try grilling ears of corn in their husks—skipping the prep time involved with removing the husks and silk. Cook the corn over medium-high heat, turning the ears occasionally, until the husks are thoroughly blackened and the kernels are tender—about 15 minutes.
