Default Surrounded by sweet corn!

So, one of our salesman just stopped by our office and had the back of his pickup loaded with fresh sweet corn. I now have probably about 50 ears that I'll cook up this weekend for my brother's graduation party. I'll probably cook them on the grill, and was wondering if any of you had any secrets/special ways of grill cooking corn.

Get a nice big burlap bag, put all the corn in it and soak the whole bag and corn in water for 30 minutes. Then toss the whole bag on the grill. makes sure to keep turning it and wetting it but it imparts an awsome flavor on the corn

I peel the outer husks down like a banana (but keeping them attached), and remove the silk. Then put the husks back and grill them until done. I think you can soak them in water before grilling if you want.

My BIL from NC does this with Shrimp, Potatoes, Onion and Sweet Corn.

Its the other use for a Turkey Fryer besides brewing.

I think I still prefer husked and boiled in a pot myself.

Don't forget the butter and hot sauce when it's time to eat them.

I soak them in water for a few minutes, then peel the husks down and remove the silk, put some butter and pepper on the corn, put the husks back in place, and grill. Salt after they're done.

I expect to be immersed in SC soon also. Where are you in IL?

I'd like to have the motto: "Have keg, will travel..." (which I do every so often)...catchy, huh?

I husk and remove the silk, then rub a compund butter I got from another site. For 6 ears do 6 tbsp butter and a tsp each of salt, sugar, basil, thyme, parsley, and rosemary. I rub the butter all over each ear, wrap in foil and toss on the grill.
