Ingredients

  • 10 ears corn on the cob
  • 2 gallons water
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

Instructions

  • Remove the silks from the ears of corn... To do this, you'll need to fold back the husks without removing them, then pull out all the silks. Carefully replace the husks, folding them back over the cob. 
  • Soak the corn cobs in a bucket or dish pan of water for 10 minutes or more.
  • Meanwhile, warm up your grill. You can use a charcoal grill or gas grill, either one.
  • Once the grill is ready, remove the corn from the water. 
  • Shake off any excess water, and place on the grill; be careful not to put it over an open flame, so the husks don't catch fire. 
  • Allow the corn to cook for 10 to 15 minutes on a medium heat. You'll need to be vigilant in turning it so it doesn't burn; however, the husks will turn brown as the corn cooks.
  • As your corn cooks, mix up the honey butter by mixing together the butter and honey until you have a sweet, creamy mixture. Set aside.
  • Once your grilled corn on the cob is cooked through and the kernels are tender, remove the cobs from the grill and fold back/remove the husks. 
  • Brush each cob with the honey butter mixture, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Serve it and enjoy every sweet and salty bite!
