MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 6, 2012

"This is excellent. Yes, it takes some time to grill the corn but it is well worth it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 6, 2009

"I use canned corn.  Drain and add to a black skillet and roast on grill to give the smokey flavor. Be sure to spray the skillet with cooking spray and stir corn often.  Works well, tastes great.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 13, 2008

"Yeah, you're right- this is labor intensive. I used a bundt pan to hold the cob while I cut off the corn. Is it worth it? It tastes pretty good- no issue there, but I usually don't have this kind of time to spend on a "condiment." I'm going to play with this a little to see if I can make this a little more time-friendly."
