Basil Garlic Grilled Corn on the Cob

by | Jun 4, 2015 | Entertaining | 4 comments

We love to grill almost everything.  I first had grilled corn on the cob at a friend’s house right after Scott and I were married.  He put butter, garlic salt and pepper on the corn and wrapped it in foil.  We made it this way for years and while it is a family favorite, I was ready to shake things up a bit.

I’ve seen corn grilled in the husks but have never tried it.  It was so easy and gave a slightly smoky flavor to the corn.

Garlic Basil Grilled CornFirst I gently peeled back the corn husk, thoroughly removed the silk then placed the corn in ice water for 10-15 minutes.  This is supposed to help the sugars from turning to starch in the corn.

Heat your grill to 350 degrees if you are using a charcoal grill.  We love our Green Egg, as you know!  Cook for 40 turning often.
