Turns out you can cook corn directly on the grill. When we bought our grill eight or nine years ago, I found a recipe has you peel back the husk, remove the silk, re-wrap the corn in the husk, and soak it all in saltwater for an hour. That is a lot of lead time, and we wrapped up our yard work at 9PM this evening … so an extra hour and a half or so to get the corn ready wasn’t going to happen.
But if you shuck the corn, baste it with a little olive oil, and toss it on the grill … turn the ears every 3-4 minutes to avoid scorching … it is delicious. Total cook time was somewhere between 15 and 20 minutes over medium-high flame. The grill itself was open a lot (every 3 or 4 minutes to turn it, plus checking on the burgers).
