The Trick to Grilling Corn in the Husks is to Soak the Corn First
Cook Over Medium Heat on Gas or Over Charcoal
Don't Worry When the Husks Turn Black - That's Normal
My Boys Love Fresh Corn Grilled in the Husks
We spent last week at Cedar Island in a cottage with a grill. This was our second visit to Cedar Sunrise. It's a great place for the outdoorsy types and those who love to grill.
My boys love grilled corn on the cob. We grill corn in husks and also in tin foil. The flavor is a little different - but both ways are good. Corn takes up less space on the grill when made in tin foil, so that's usually my deciding factor. It's less work to grill corn in the husks. The silks just fall right off after the corn is cooked, so that's nice. When I have room, I usually grill it in the husks. Then, I don't have to shuck the corn and desilk it.
Produce is plentiful on the coast of North Carolina, so we bought corn at roadside stands and had corn with several meals. The boys love corn, so that's always a hit.
If you're interested in grilling corn on the grill, check out my grilled corn guide at Yes You Can Grill. I cover both methods of grilling corn. It's really easy to grill corn if you know the basics, and it's hard to beat grilled corn.
