Grilled Corn on the Cob

Grilled Corn on the Cob

This is one of my favourite side dishes that uses an outdoor grill. The #Corn is wrapped in foil to stay warm while guests eat their meals (or return for seconds). This recipe prepares one, simply repeat for each ear of corn.


  • 1 ear of corn (also known as maize)
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of butter
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25 ml) of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25 ml) of pepper
  • 1 sheet of aluminium foil approximately 12 x 12 inches (30 x 30 cm)


  1. Shuck then rinse the corn.
  2. Cut off a sheet of aluminium foil then place on a cutting board, should be big enough to completely envelop the ear of corn.
  3. Place corn over aluminium foil for the following steps.
  4. Using a fork, apply butter directly on the cob, spreading over its entire surface.
  5. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the corn. Otherwise substitute salt with an alternative like Mrs. Dash.
  6. Wrap the corn in aluminium foil. To avoid leaks, be sure to twist the ends prior to folding in. Otherwise there are risks of flare-ups on an outdoor grill.
  7. Place on a grill set to high-flame for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Set the flame to low then rotate corn every 2-3 minutes for about 18 minutes. When ready the corn will audibly sizzle even when removed from the grill.
  9. Keep wrapped to stay warm. To serve, unwrap and enjoy!
