Grilled Corn Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Corn

Start by preparing the corn for grilling. Peel back the husks of each ear of corn, but do not remove them entirely. Gently remove the corn silk, making sure to leave the husks intact. Then, fold the husks back over the corn, forming a protective cover.

Step 2: Create Flavor Pockets

Cut four pieces of foil, one for each ear of corn. Place each ear of corn in the center of a foil piece.

Step 3: Add Butter and Seasoning

Take 1 tablespoon of room temperature butter and spread it evenly over each ear of corn, making sure to coat the kernels. The butter will not only enhance the flavor but also help the seasonings stick to the corn.

Step 4: The Flavorful Medley

Now, it’s time to add the burst of flavors that will elevate your grilled corn to a whole new level. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of garlic salt, 1 teaspoon of paprika, 1 teaspoon of chili powder, 1/8 teaspoon of salt, and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper onto each ear of corn.

Step 5: Seal the Flavor

Gently rub the butter and seasoning onto each ear of corn, ensuring that the flavors are evenly distributed and coat every kernel. The combination of garlic salt, paprika, and chili powder will create a delightful harmony of savory and smoky notes that will leave your taste buds dancing with joy.

Step 6: Wrap and Twist

Once the corn is coated with the butter and seasoning, roll up the foil around each ear of corn, enclosing it securely. Twist the ends of the foil to create little flavor-packed parcels.

Step 7: Grill to Perfection

Preheat your grill to medium heat. Place the foil-wrapped corn directly on the grill grates. Grill the corn for 20-30 minutes, turning occasionally to ensure even cooking and prevent burning. The husks will help steam the corn, keeping it tender and juicy, while the grill adds a lovely smoky char to the kernels.

Step 8: Unwrap and Enjoy

Once the grilled corn is ready, carefully remove the foil wrapping. The aroma of the buttery, seasoned corn will be irresistible! Serve the corn on a platter and watch as your family and friends are drawn to its mouthwatering allure.
