How To Cook Corn on the Cob on the Grill in Foil

  1. Clean and shuck the corn. Keep reading and you’ll see the section on how to do that.
  2. Tear off a long sheet of aluminum foil and place the corn cobs on it.
  3. Place some butter slices in between each corn cob. Also, add them on both on the outer sides of the starting and ending cob.
  4. Season the entire group of corncobs with salt and pepper.
  5. Wrap it all up in the tin foil and place it on a preheated grill on indirect heat.
  6. Cook it with the grill covered for about 15 minutes. It will need to cook longer if you’re also grilling something with the grill lid off.

You can also cook it on direct heat but you’ll need to watch it seriously, turn it frequently, and it will be done in about half the time. When cooked in foil, it retains its moisture and freshness. Also, it distributes the heat more evenly.

You can easily cook corn on the cob on the grill in foil on charcoal, pellet, gas, or electric.

How to Shuck Corn Easy (aka How to Peel Corn Easy)

After having worked in the food industry, there were lots of ways I was shown but this is the one way that seemed to be the quickest, best, and most used by others. Ignore the videos you might see that mention how to shuck corn using the microwave. It makes it too hot, excessively moist, and it won’t taste as good and fresh.

  1. Do not get the corn wet during this process. Remove the outer husks first. That’s the large outer, leafy parts. You’ll also take advantage of that moment and pull off the majority of the silk strands as well. All of this is just a large grab-and-pull away from the cob. To make it easier, you pull away and down a bit towards the base where the shuck “leaves” are attached.
  2. All that remains are some of those silk strands. After you’ve remove the majority of them in the previous step, grip the cob as thought you’re getting ready to wring water from a wet towel. But, instead of squeezing too tightly, you use one hand to grip one side and the other hand does the “wringing” on the other half. You’ll be firmly rotating your “wringing” hand back-and-forth. After you go back-and-forth a couple of times, pull that wringing hand away as you pull the now loosened strands as well. You repeat this on both halves of the cob a few times.
  3. Then, run under cold water to rinse off. After that, you’re then ready for immediately preparing this recipe for corn on the cob grilled on indirect heat.
