Zesty Grilled Corn

This recipe is a definite crowd-pleaser at summer gatherings. It's easy to make the day before and just pop on the grill during the picnic.

    I found that although the corn had good flavor I did not enjoy it as much as a simple ear of corn, boiled with a little butter and a sprinkle of salt. I also did not like the bother of double wrapping the corn for grilling or unwrapping the very hot foil after grilling. If both types of corn on the cob were offered I would select the plain one and add butter and salt.

    Visiting family in Alberta with some fresh corn; this was quick, different and everyone wanted the recipe. I sent them to Taste of Home. You could certainly add additional spice of choice for zip.

    Less zippy than I thought it would be. Only takes 5 min. to make sauce then cook 5-6 min. each side, 4 sides = 20 - 25 min.

    Funny! I would agree with Nancy. Don't close the lid / cover of the grill.

    Hi JYStacy,Grill, uncovered, I beleive means to leave the grill cover up while grilling, not closed. This way the corn will not overcook with the cover closed.Luv2CookNancy in Montana

    it says to fold in edges of foil and seal, leaving space for expansion of steam.. and then grill uncovered 5-6 min.... how can you do both? which way do you grill it? covered or not?
