Grilling corn on the cob is one of the easiest ways to make it – especially if you’re making it for a crowd. You don’t have to fuss with big pots of boiling water.

This recipe comes together very quickly and is packed with flavor that you just can get by boiling your corn. The key to amazing flavor is making the garlic butter recipe. It’s a butter and olive oil mixture flavored with garlic, salt and Worcestershire sauce. Let’s be real here a good Butter and Garlic recipe is life and can be slathered on anything!

I like to combine butter and olive oil because butter has a tendency to burn. Most grills are too hot for butter causing it to burn quickly. Some of my other favorite corn recipes are this Mexican Street Corn Salad and this Grilled Corn Salad. So, who’s ready for some corn?

Recommendations for Husking Corn for Grilled Corn on the Cob

To husk corn by hand, pull away the outer leaves until there is only one layer of leaves remaining on the ear.

Then, pull back the last layer of leaves to expose the tip of the corn. Next, gather all leaves in one hand and pull them to the bottom of the ear.

Once you can see the kernels, gather all of the silky tassel remaining on the corn, and pull them down the corn in one movement.  Finally, remove the leaves and the tassels by firmly grasping them at the bottom of the ear and breaking them away from the cob. There is a video here.
