I usually remove the first couple of layers of husk. Then soak in water for 30min or so. Then load em up in the cooker. Let em sit for a few hours rotating as necessary to keep em from burning. I like doin em direct of medium heat as well on the kettle. I used to spend alot time pullin back the husk de-silking them rubbin em with butter. to much work for me. i usually heat up a cheap tub of butter and have all the seasonin out on the table. ill pull em out and dehusk and silk them for everyone. wearing gloves
