Grilled Corn: A Summer Favorite

I had mentioned in my sangria post a few days ago that one of my favorite things about summer is grilled corn. I grew up doing corn in a big pot of boiling water - good but not nearly as great as corn on the grill. Here is how we do it at Chez Drama.

Start off with fresh corn on the cob.

Make sure you have butter and aluminum foil on hand. If you don't want to use butter, use a little olive oil instead.

And my version of "House Seasoning" (original version by Paula Deen). I use this on everything as a general seasoning. It is 1 part black pepper, 1 part garlic powder and 2 parts kosher salt. I use an old spice jar to store it.

Get your favorite loved one to remove the husks and cornsilk.

Place corn on a sheet of aluminum foil.

Rub it with butter. Feel free to sing a Marvin Gaye or Barry White song while you do.

Sprinkle corn with a 1/2 teaspoon of house seasoning.

Wrap the cobs in foil and grill on medium-high heat for 10 to 12 minutes.

Let cool for 5 minutes and enjoy!

This will definitely be making an appearance at our upcoming July 4th cookout. Have you ever done corn on the grill? If not, what is your favorite thing to cook on the grill?
