Original recipe yields 6 ears of corn

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Heat the garlic and butter in a small saucepan over low heat for 5 minutes to infuse the butter with the flavor of garlic. Do not let the butter simmer. Stir together the sugar, salt, black pepper, and cumin in a small dish. Stir into the butter mixture along with the lime juice and hot sauce until evenly blended. Brush the ears of corn generously with the garlic butter; reserve remaining butter.
  3. Cook the corn on the preheated grill, rotating occasionally until the corn is hot and tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Brush the corn with the remaining butter as the corn cooks.

Nothing signals the start of summer like grilled corn on the cob at a BBQ! I soaked my corn first in cold water with a bit of sugar and salt for about an hour inside the husks (peeling back the husk a bit and removing a bit of the silk then putting the husk back). I put the corn in husks on the grill for 30 minutes rotating it around the coals. The corn cooks by steaming inside the husks. I softened the butter and added the rest of the ingredients. I cut the amount of pepper in half and added 1 tsp. of smoked paprika and 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper vs. adding the hot pepper sauce as I thought it might be a little too hot for us. All that was left to do was break out the napkins and eat. These definitely are a garlic lover's dream - sweet, spicy and delicious!

I made this tonight and it was PERFECT! It is tender, smokey, sweet and spicy...very much a Tex Mex flavor, which I love! I tweaked it similar to what Jill did by soaking the corn and grilling it with the husks! Instead of using the seasoned butter on the corn AFTER it was cooked, I peeled back the husks and brushed it on and then I relpaced the husks and grilled on low flame for 30 minutes...turning constantly! The husks will flame up while grilling, but thats what gives the corn that great smokey flavor! I didn't use the lime juice because I didn't have any. I will use this recipe for grilled corn from now on!

So very good! I soaked the corn first without the silk for an hour. I'm not a huge fan of cumin so I replaced with chili powder and used Franks Hot Sauce. Wowza! The butter combination was outstanding. I didn't even have the lime. Cooked on the grill then brushed with the rest of the butter. Great recipe!
