Fire Roasted Corn
Fire roasting corn on the grill yields such spectacular results, I recommend doing it whenever possible.
- 4 ears of corn you will need about 4 -6 ears of corn, shucked and silk removed to make 3 cups.
- 4 tbs olive oil
Preheat the BBQ grill at high (between 450-650°F) for at least 12 minutes.
Brush the grill grates with olive oil or apply Pam or brush the ears of corn with olive oil on all sides, and season with salt and pepper.
When you grill has preheated, place the corn on the grill turning the ears every 2 minutes on each side until they are cooked evenly about 8-10 minutes.
Take the corn off the BBQ grill, place on a cutting board, and and strip the corn kernels off the cob with a sharp knife.
You might need to wear oven mitts or tongs to hold the corn in place because it’s hot.
Put the kernels in a large bowl.
There are two ways you can cook corn with a BBQ grill. The first is on the grill. Take a whole ear of shucked corn and lay it across a well-greased grill to let it get that nice dark char. You don’t want to burn it, just singe it a little bit, then go ahead and flip it over to get the other side.
Another way, if you have a charcoal grill, is to butter up the corn, wrap it in foil, and lay it in the barbecue next to the hot coals. You can leave them there while you cook the rest of your meal on the grill. Add your seasonings to the buttered corn before you wrap it for the best results.
