  • 6-8 ears fresh corn husks and silk removed (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons butter more to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste


  • Preheat grill to 350ºF and brush or spray oil on grill grates.
  • Remove husks from corn and remove the silk (the thin strands attached to the corn).
  • Rub each ear of corn with unsalted butter, salt and pepper.
  • Place directly over heat on medium-hot grill (350ºF).
  • Rotate when dark spots appear and kernels deepen in color (roughly 5 minutes) until ears are uniformly cooked (usually 20 minutes). The ear will be speckled with char spots!
  • Add salt and serve hot with additional butter and salt.


  • Look for bright yellow corn with golden silk. Plus ideally local and non-GMO whenever possible!
