Do you have to soak corn on the cob before you grill it?
No, soaking corn is not necessary. If you want to make corn on the cob in the husks, then it is a good idea to soak the corn so the husks do not burn when cooking. In my opinion, cooking in the husks looks pretty but very messy. Some people say the kernels are plumper after soaking, I saw no difference, just another pot to wash!
How do you grill corn on the cob in foil?
Grilling corn on the cob in foil adds the extra step of using aluminum foil and foil can be pricey. Also, the smoky flavor of grilling corn is not as apparent as when grilling corn on the cob without foil. However, if you grill corn in foil, season corn with salt, pepper and add a little lime juice. Wrap the corn in the foil and grill over medium heat for about 15 minutes, turning frequently.
The benefit of grilling the corn on the cob on the grill without the foil?
In my opinion, this is the easiest method to grill corn on the cob. Why mess with simplicity. Remove the husks and silks. Cooking the corn over a medium heat gives the corn a great char and smoky flavor. The corn juice carmelizes to add great flavor. My families favorite way, simple and easy.
