Grilled CornGrilled corn on the cob is the perfect grill buddy for anything from steaks to hot dogs, and it’s easy!

With a NuVal® Score of 100, fresh corn on the cob can be cooked on the grill either wrapped in its own husks (more dramatic) or in aluminum foil. Add flavor with herbs and spices before roasting. Here’s how:

  • If the corn has many layers of husk, peel some away, leaving a few layers for protection.
  • Completely cover and soak the husked corn in a pot of cold water.
  • After 15 minutes, remove the corn and shake off the excess water.
  • Pull the husks back away from the corn and brush the kernels with olive oil or butter. Season with herbs like basil, cilantro or oregano (or garlic, onion, salt and black pepper).
  • Re-wrap the corn in their husks and tie each ear with a piece of loose husk. Grill on medium heat, rotating the corn as needed to prevent charring.

After several turns, place the corn in the indirect heat or top shelf of the grill. Close the cover to steam for approximately 15 minutes. When the corn is cooked, carefully unwrap it. Serve with butter.
