There are a couple of ways to grill corn on the cob with GrillGrates. Whether in the husk or not, GrillGrates make it easy to grill corn on the cob. Leave the husks on for a longer, slower grill by soaking the corn for an hour or so before grilling. Grill without the husks for a faster grill with more colorful and crunchy seared kernels. This is also a great way to grill corn to cut the kernels off for other uses and salads. The raised rails keep the corn from rolling around the grill. Grilling adds another dimension to corn on the cob. UPDATE June 2010: We’ve stop soaking and cooking in the husk as we’ve found that NEKID Corn on the Cob is easy and doesn’t dry out with GrillGrates. Butter and season after the corn is off the grill. If you hear it pop its done!
Corn on the cob with or without the husks
Peel husk back to base and remove the silk, but leave the husk attached. Soak husked corn for an hour prior to grilling. The wet husks will help steam the corn. OR Shuck corn completely and lightly pepper.
Grilling Corn on the Cob with Grill Grates!
MEDIUM HEAT 400F Place corn vertically parallel with the rails so the corn rests between the rails. Shucked corn will take 15 minutes rotating it every 3 minutes to circle the around the GrillGrates. OR
Place partially shucked corn on the GrillGrates and turn once. Remove or open the husk after 10 minutes and expose the kernels to the raised rail for 5 minutes, rotating to get more contact / sear points. (Careful hot shucks) OR
Start the husked corn out on the warming rack while grilling other foods, and bring down to the GrillGrates as you are closer to being done grilling and grill space becomes available.
You’ll notice a crunchier texture and rich flavor of Grilled Corn on the Cob as opposed to boiling it.
