Clean the corn and get rid of excess silk

 Completely submerge the corn under water (you may need to find something heavy to keep it submerged)  Why Submerge?? This will add extra moisture for cooking them and because I said so!!!!  DO THIS ABOUT 15 MINUTES BEFORE COOKING!!!

 Remove from water and shake excess moisture from corn.

 Place on a med-high preheated grill and, now this is IMPORTANT….turn about every 3-4 minutes!! So, no going to chat with the guest, or leave the grill for a potty break…you do NOT want these to burn up!!!  (unless of course, you have your fire extinguisher close by!!!)

 The corn will start turning a nice colored brown and yes, maybe a flame or two will erupt, but no problemo…the soaking of them in water lets them steam inside!

 They will look almost burnt when they are done…about 15-20 mins.

 Now, take them from the grill, and don’t be an idiot by using your hands…these are HOT…!! Use tongs and put them on a platter or plate.  Then find either a dish towel or a clean rag and peel them like a banana…pulling off all the husk and making them look all nice and “purdy”!! You could be a real nice host and do it for your guest, or you can have them do it themselves and have a nice messy table…the choice is yours!!!

 Butter, salt and pepper…and you are good to go!!!!
