Roast Corn on the Cob Recipe

Every summer, my family looks forward to corn on the cob. I make it extra special by roasting it, all wrapped up on the grill. —Johnnie McLeod, Bastrop, Louisiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 ears fresh sweet corn
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 6 ice cubes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Additional butter, optional


  • 1. Remove husks and silk from corn. Place each ear on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18x12 in.). Add 1 tablespoon butter and 1 ice cube. Wrap securely, twisting ends of foil to make handles for turning.
  • 2. Grill corn, covered, turning occasionally, over medium direct heat until tender, about 25 minutes. Open carefully to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; if desired, serve with additional butter. Yield: 6 servings.

"This works well in the oven. I was leaving home for an hour; I followed the recipe directions, pretty much, put the corn in the oven at 250 degrees and put 3 ice cubes in each foiled cob. When I came home they were crisp and buttery--not soggy at all. My family asked that I do it this way from now on. Note: put a pan under it in the oven, as one leaked and caused a mess."
