I added the compound butter mixture to corn that had been boiled since I rarely use a grill. I used lemon pepper seasoning in place of the lemon juice since I had no juice in the house. Next time I think I will reduce or eliminate the sugar--not sure--because when one is eating sweet corn, does it really need sugar on top? I will use this recipe again.

Everyone loved it. Nice change on grilled corn. I put the foil down on the grill and brushed it with the butter mixture as suggested by a previous review. It turned out great.

This definitely put a spin on grilled corn! Make sure that you make some extra Chive Butter for later. I loved this recipe! Will definitely be putting this in my recipe book!

I wrapped the corn in foil instead of re-wrapping it in the husks, and it turned out fine. Very tender, moist and flavorful! Yum!

Excellent!! Soaked the corn in the husks for one hour. Then, cleaned the corn of the husk and silk. Placed on aluminum foil on the gas grill. Continuously brushing with the butter mixture, and rotating the corn until finished. Absolutely superb!!

I use lime rather than lemon juice and add some chili powder. Extremely delicious!
