Easy No-Mess Corn On The Grill Recipe

Before summer officially recedes into the rearview mirror, I wanted to share my super easy no-mess “recipe” for cooking corn on the grill. This is my preferred method because the corn-on-the-cob cooks right in the husks, eliminating most of the mess that comes from shucking.  You shuck the grilled corn AFTER it is cooked, and it’s less messy because the silk slides right off with the corn husk.

And seriously, is there anything better than fresh-from-the-farm, just-picked, sweet corn slathered with butter and just a sprinkle of salt?  I think not!

So before corn season slips away, you have to try this no-muss, no-fuss method to prepare corn on your grill.

Three Easy Steps to Cooking Easy No-Mess Grilled Corn

  1. Trim any loose pieces of the husk and cut the ends off of each ear of corn. This ensures that it won’t burn when you put it on the grill. Place corn cobs in a large bowl (or in in the kitchen sink with the stopper closed) and submerge in water for at least 20 minutes.  You can keep them in the water longer, but 20 minutes is the minimum.

  2. Preheat your electric, gas or charcoal grill.  Place the corn directly on the grill and cook for 10 minutes undisturbed.  After 10 minutes flip the corn over and cook for another 10 minutes.  Don’t worry if the outside of the corn husk starts to look a little charred.

  4. Slather with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
