Default Tips on grilling sweet corn?

I have half a dozen ears soaking in cold water husks on. Not sure how long to go and how hot. Thanks.

I too cook them in the husks. I sometimes soak them 2-4 hours just because I get busy with other things. The only thing your doing is protecting the corn with a wet husk and using the steam created to cook the corn. The biggest deal for me is when it starts smelling really good, it's close to done. I'll go close to 350*F for about 15-20 mins indirect.

Good Luck!

I never soak. Not saying it won't help, but I don't see the need.

I just grill or how smoke them, husks on, until the husks get good and charred. I just pull one back to check the kernels. If they're bright yellow, plump and pop with a bit of pressure, good to go.

I like to clean them and wrap in foil with butter, salt and pepper. Throw on the top rack of the grill and cook indirectly.

And here is another way. I husk them, season with oil, k-salt and pepper, and grill them with now wrapper at all. I move the ears from direct to indirect, until they are cooked, but still firm, and have some grill marks on them.

I like to drizzle the cobs with olive oil, season with S&P then wrap in bacon.
They need to be cooked over indirect heat and rotated.

I don't soak mine either. Put them on the gas grill over medium heat for about 10 minutes and then flip them over for another 10 minutes. The husks will get charred but the corn will be fine. I dunk them in ice water for a few seconds after they are done so it is easier to take the husks off. Otherwise you will be playing hot potato with the corn. The corn always tastes sweeter when you cook it on the grill.

I just cook mine naked. Baste in butter and rotate 1/4 turn every few minutes over charcoal to get a nice light to medium brown carmalization.

Never underestimate the abilities of the brethren to make vegetables bad for you.

When I cook them with the husks on, I soak them in SALTED water. I like to peel a small section to allow butter to be drizzled in periodically when the periodic rotation ends up with the peeled section up.

I cook them without husks sometimes too, but this is direct and quick using olive oil.

I never soak. but what I do is pull back the husks, remove the strings, brush generously with oil and sprinkle with butter buds, fold the husks back up and throw on a medium high grill and rotate ever few minutes for about 40 minutes. It is one of my specialties.

I clean them, wrap a strip or two of bacon around them, and cover in foil. Then I cook them over indirect heat, turning occasionally for about 20 minutes or so.

What he said exactly. If you like, pull the husks back but leave them attached as long handles.

Lot's of ways to go! Great Ideas! I too have done the grill marks. For us though there is something about them in the husks. They are like built in warmers.

Now cowgirls bacon gig is a sure try! ;D
