Smoky Grilled Corn

A friend and I cooked up this corn one evening when getting ready to grill. The buttery corn, with its sweet-spicy seasoning, won top honors over our steaks. —Linda Landers Kalispell, Montana

    This recipe is good, definitely easy enough to make, but could be a little spicier and sweeter. Then again, that's just my personal preference.

    I made this exactly as writen using fresh sweet corn from my garden. The only change I made was to soak corn in husks with silk removed before hand. I peeled back the husks to baste and grilled with husks still on. Best sweet corn ever!!! Used Franks for the pepper sauce.

    So good! My family loves it! The honey mellows the pepper sauce so it's not too spicy for kids. I use cayenne pepper instead of paprika, delicious results!

    This a really easy way to make grilled corn-on-the-cob. Sometimes we just use the butter, honey, and salt and pepper to baste the corn. Delicious!
