Joe's Grilled Corn on the Cob

My husband Joe loves to grill corn on the cob. He came up with this method a few years ago and it's a standard when we grill out in the summer time.

Fresh Corn on the Cob
Aluminum Foil (Heavy duty works well)
Butter or Margarine
Garlic Salt
Garlic Pepper

Shuck and clean the corn. Tear off about 18 inches of foil and lay on the counter. Place the corn at the end of the foil Place about 1 tablespoon of butter on the corn (be generous because this is the liquid that the corn will cook won't actually eat all of it). Season with Garlic Salt, Garlic Pepper, Salt and Pepper (you also add any other flavorings that you like). Roll up the corn, butter, and seasoning. Fold the ends of the foil over onto the corn so that the butter doesn't leak out and make a mess. Place corn on a hot grill for 20 minutes (flip half-way through).

It will be delicious and it's hard to mess up!

I've also cooked the corn this way on my stove-top griddle and it works just as well.

ps- I'm not sure if it's clear in my instructions, but you put only ONE corn on the cob in a piece of foil. We generally grill one corn per person that we are serving.
