Grilled Corn on the Cob

What says Summer better than grilling and corn on the cob? How about grilled corn on the cob. I know it’s not quite that time of year yet but it’s been in the 80’s here so it already feels like Summer. My grocery store had corn on sale this week so I bought a few ears for us to grill. I’ve never done this before but I have eaten it, and it’s really good. I looked online for some ideas on how to grill it and we had this for dinner last night with marinated grilled pork chops. I think the corn could have cooked a little more so I’ll probably leave it on the grill longer next time. It was still a great dinner though!

Grilled Corn on the Cob

4 ears corn on the cob
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 tsp dried parsley or 2 tsp fresh chopped parsley
salt

Begin by pulling back the husks on the corn and removing the silks, but leave the husks attached to the cob. Once the silks are removed, rinse the corn well.  Wrap the husks back around the corn and place in a pan or pot of water to soak for at least one hour. Remove the corn from the water and pat dry with a paper towel. Again, pull the husks back. Mix the parsley in with the melted butter and brush over the corn kernels. Sprinkle each corn cob with salt and pull the husks back up. Secure with a rubber band or wrap in foil. Grill for 30-45 minutes. Test the corn kernels with a fork to see if done.
