With the Labor Day weekend coming I knew I wanted to plan food on the grill. We have been having wonderful weather finally in Western Washington and I wanted us to be able to enjoy as much of it as possible PLUS grilling puts Kevin in the drivers seat. That way I get to plan the meals and set up the side dishes, but Kevin gets to play Master of the Grill so I knew it was the perfect time to bust out a grilled corn recipe!
I have seen grilled corn so many different ways. Leave it in the husks, take it out of the husks and place it directly on the grill, shuck it and wrap it in tin foil. I have tried them all and they are all very tasty but never actually grilled in the husks before so I decided we (and when I say “we” I mean Kevin) would try it that way. I hopped online and checked several different versions. I finally decided to combine a few to come up with the final product that I wanted.
It was a total hit! Seth, who just informed me that he is not a big corn fan (How did I not know that? I mean I have only been his mother for ohhhh 24 years!!) but he loved it cooked on the grill with the spicy butter and would eat it again and again cooked this way. I don’t think I even made a positive ID check on mine! It was like….corn on the plate….POOF……no corn on the plate!
