How To Prepare Mouthwatering Grilled Corn On The Cob For Barbecues and Cookouts

Grilled Corn On The CobGrilled Corn On The Cob

For some families no cookout is completed without some grilled corn on the cob.  I know this is the case for my family during our family reunion. It is a family tradition to place plenty of corn on the grill and everyone has to have at least two ears of grilled corn each. 

I made the mistake of not preparing corn one year and I will never make that mistake again.  All the complaining I received was too much and I could not handle all the negativity that I received from the elders in my family.  

All said, nothing can beat an ear of corn straight off the grill. The corn is dipped in hot butter as soon as it comes of the grill and is passed off to a waiting dinner guest. So enough about me and my family, and get down to the reason why you're visiting this website.  

Here is a great recipe for corn on the cob for your enjoyment.
