It’s corn on the cob time—though let’s be real, corn is good in pretty much any season. But summer is when we start diving into all the different ways to cook corn on the cob, and of course, we’re turning to one of our favorites, the Pioneer Woman, to learn how she makes it.

Ree Drummond shared a few photos of corn on the grill from her annual Fourth of July shindig, and man that corn looks good. Oh, and did I mention it’s incredibly easy to make? Ree knows exactly how to serve a delicious corn on the cob!

How to Grill Corn on the Cob Like the Pioneer Woman

Tip #1: Soak the corn

Unlike most corn on the cob recipes, the cooks over at Ree’s patriotic party were throwing whole in-husk cobs on the grill. However, what isn’t pictured is the presoak that the unshucked ears of corn need before grilling. Make sure to soak the ears in cold water for 30 minutes before you grill your corn.

Once soaked, place the ears on the grill and turn them occasionally. A half-hour should do the trick. The husks should be charred black by the time you take them off.

Tip #2: Peel back the husk

Peel them back and remove the silk. If you peel back the husks instead of removing them completely, it creates a handle to hold the corn. Those husks are hot, so wear gloves!

Tip #3: Dip it in a bucket of butter

There’s no light buttering over at Ree’s party. Those cobs were dunked in a huge bucket of melted butter. When I saw that photo, I actually cheered. Corn and butter are like the beach and sunshine—the perfect pair for a summer day.

If you’re inspired to throw a patriotic party of your own, here are Ree Drummond’s signature Fourth of July dishes.
