Good concept, but the marinade did not really stay with the corn through grilling. There was only a light flavor, overall not worth the work to prepare.

I left this to marinate overnight and it was really bad. I don't know if I did something wrong but when I put it on the grill it just got really hard. Maybe the corn was bad.

For all the trouble it's worth, it really doesn't do much. I was disappointed by this recipe.
