    Sorry for the incorrect review below! Loved the seasonings on the corn. As usual, I cooked the corn, cooled it, and sliced the kernels off of the cob. I then combined the corn with the seasonings and served it in bowls. It's a keeper!

    I used a little less pepper and chili powder, but it was still delish. I will do this again.

    Wonderful combination of flavors. I've also substituted honey for brown sugar, and that is delicious as well.

    I love doing the ears on the grill, and I shuck them and wrap them in foil. The butter mixture is exactly as the title states- sweet and spicy! I absolutely loved it. Super easy and delicious! I took the leftover ears, removed the kernels, tossed them with the butter mixture and froze it for a future meal.
