I was searching through older threads and ran across this. Very interesting and useful info. I am vending at a festival next weekend and I decided to add some corn into the mix of the "normal" BBQ stuff. I did a test run for my mom and she went nuts - said it was the best she had ever eaten. Now I don't know about that, but it was good. I husked and desilked the corn and put it directly on the grill. I let it cook on medium high heat for about 5 mins and then turned it. I brushed it with butter, garlic powder and some creole seasoning. Repeated the process 3 more times until I was satisfied it was done. I am going to try it again this weekend to make sure I can do it consistently.
