A little smoke and char enhance the sweetness and bring out the true flavor of corn. This traditional grilled corn in the husk is best served slathered with butter and sprinkled with salt. 



4 ears of corn in the husk 

1/2 tablespoon coarse kosher salt


Peel back the husks of the corn without detaching them from the cob. Remove the silks and fold the husks back into place to cover the corn. 

Dissolve ½ tablespoon coarse salt in a sink or large bowl of water and soak for at least 15 minutes or up to 8 hours. 

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. 

Remove the corn from the water and shake off excess water so that it's not dripping.  

Place cobs on the grill and cook for 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally. 

Once the corn is cooked to your liking remove it from the grill, peel off the husks and serve with butter, salt & pepper.
