Ingredients

8 ears of corn

Kosher salt

Smoked paprika, for sprinkling (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat a grill to low. Peel back the husks from the corn and remove the silk. Sprinkle with salt and smoked paprika, if desired. Fold the husks back over the corn.
  2. Grill the corn, turning occasionally, until the husks are charred and the corn is tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cook’s Note

Grilling corn in its husk helps steam the corn and prevent it from drying out.
