Grilled Corn on the Cob

Grilled Corn on the Cob From America’s Test Kitchen

Serves 4.

Ingredients
4 ears fresh yellow corn
Butter
Instructions

1. Remove silk from the fresh ears of corn by pulling husks a little over half way down. Remove silk, rinsing under cool running water to wash away silk sticking to ear. Pull husks back up the ear of corn. Tie with a thin strip of husk or piece of kitchen twine. Soak in cold water to cover for at least 30 minutes, (see illustrations below).
2. Heat grill. When grill is hot, place silked and soaked ears of corn on grill rack. Grill over high heat, turning corn by quarter turns, until husks char, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve whole with butter, salt and pepper on the side.
