Corn so tasty, I call it dessert corn.

 

Corn is one of my favorite foods. I could eat it at every meal. When I was a little boy, I would always snack on cans of corn. Most kids wanted a sandwich when they came home from school I wanted a can of corn. Now being aware of how many vitamins are lost in canned vegetables, I wouldn’t dare touch one, I now have to wait for it to be in season or frozen. So, you can imagine how excited I get in the summer, when fresh corn is in abundance. Especially Long Island corn. So crisp, so sweet, so delicious. I drool just thinking about it. Today I’m going to give you the recipe for the best grilled corn you’ll ever taste.

You are going to get yourself 8 ears of corn and shuck them. A little trick I do is to use a paper towel to help pull the silk from the corn. It makes it easier to grab the strand, and saves time.

In a bowl mix up:
2 sticks of softened butter (I just leave it out for an hour or so before I start cooking)
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
salt to taste

Then you paint your butter on the corn with a Silicone BBQ Brush. I love these brushes cause they don’t shed hairs, are cheap, and are dishwasher safe. After you get a good coating of butter on the corn, wrap it in foil. The best way is to fold it diagonally in half, then fold the sides in, and roll the rest. That way you seal in the butter, you don’t want to lose it while you are roasting your corn. Throw the corn on the grill, medium high heat, for around 20 minutes. I recommend you cook these first and let them cool slightly while you grill the rest of your food.
