Grilled corn on the cob

Not much to see here with this post. I'm just posting a link to grilled corn on the cob from Savory Sweet Life. I keep forgetting how to prepare corn on the cob for the grill. I figure if I label the post Grilled corn on the cob, it will be easier for me to find when I search for it the next time I need it.

With this method, you microwave the corn first and then grill it. This really speeds up your cooking time. The recipe does say to microwave the corn for 8 minutes. We usually only grill 3 ears at a time so 3-5 minutes is usually enough. Also, I like my corn to have a bit of a bite to it.

Just don't forget to include the 5 minutes it takes for the corn to cool after you nuke it in your meal prep time. Since you are microwaving the corn in the husk, they are going to be too hot to handle right away.


  1. Hey No Fair! I want some corn pics. Corn!!!

    My dad would soak the corn in a tub of water overnight, then roast the corn over an open flame, and boy howdy it was tasty!

    Corn!!!!! In Mah Belleh!!!

  2. You can soak the corn overnight, but that takes more planning than my brain can usually handle. I got tired of forgetting to do that and just boiling the corn instead. Boiled corn is tasty, but there is just something about grilled corn. With this method I can be my usual forgetful self and still have grilled corn! CORN!!!!
