So simple, so easy and SO yum : ) item not reviewed by moderator and published
For us novice cooks...the grill is over a medium heat. I was surprised when the husks caught fire a little. It did not seem to affect the corn. Although one ear that didn't have as many husks got a little overdone. I stuck my corn upside down in a wide mouthed pitcher to soak. I had never grilled corn before. It was good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found peeling & re-wrapping the ears before cooking a bit cumbersome but not too bad. Soaking them requires taking up one bowl of your sink because with the husks still attached it's virtually impossible to find a pot big enough to cover several ears with water. The corn cooked well and stayed nice and moist but attempting to peel 12 ears of straight-off-the-grill corn was simply not worth the pain involved! Overall the best technique I've tried for grilled corn but not worth tying up the whole grill when good corn is equally awesome when cooked in a pot of water... and I can remove that from the pot with tongs, thus avoiding the tender, burnt fingers of this grilled version! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I always wanted to try corn on the grill! This was a great recipe that kept the corn extremely moist! Grilled corn is the best way to go! :-) item not reviewed by moderator and published

I tried to write a review for Bobby's "corn skewers with chipotle-cilantro butter", and although my 5-star rating was recorded, the site didn't record my review. It is the best way ever to eat corn. (I left the cobs whole). The compound buter is terrific on bruschetta, fried chicken, and probably lots of other things. item not reviewed by moderator and published
