Additional Information

It's possible to cook the corn entirely on the grill, but boiling it for several minutes before its grilled gives the corn a tender texture, with the added flavor of flame-cooked goodness.

Don't husk your corn until you are ready to prepare it. For the freshest ear of corn, leave it wrapped in its husk until minutes before you're ready to serve it. It makes a mess, but tastes totally delicious!
