Grilled corn

Grilled corn on the cob

Grilled corn on the cob is a popular menu item for barbeques and it's easy to do. Not only is it tasty, but grilling corn will impress your guests every time.


  • 4 ears corn on the cob
  • Oil for grate
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder or paprika
  • Pepper, to taste


1. Peel back the husks, leaving them attached to the ear of corn. Remove the fine hairs. Replace the husks to cover the corn. Soak in cold water for 10 minutes.

2. Heat grill to high: lightly oil grate. Drain corn. Arrange ears on grill. Cover and cook, turning occasionally with tongs, until corn is tender, around 15 to 20 minutes.

3. Remove corn from the grill. Hold the hot corn with a towel or oven mitts and peel back husks. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper and chili powder or paprika.
