Happy first day of October! I am getting ready to put my Halloween decorations up today. I am always sad to see summer go, but it is exciting to get ready for all the holiday fun that starts this time of year!
Even though summer is over, we don’t have to stop having wonderful grilled food on the BBQ! Fall is a great time to BBQ-the weather is awesome and there are lots of yummy fall vegetables that you can throw on the grill. One of our favorite things to grill is corn on the cob. Corn is generally harvested in October, so this is the perfect time!
We got some HUGE and amazing ears of corn at a local farm last week and grilled them up yesterday. Grilling corn can be a little tricky sometimes because it can burn fairly easy, but yesterday it turned out perfect so I wanted to share our technique!
Perfectly Grilled Corn on the Cob
Ears of corn husked and washed
Salt and pepper
Heavy duty aluminum foil
Spread a thin layer of butter over ear of corn and salt and pepper to taste. Roll corn up in heavy duty aluminum foil and fold sides closed. Place on grill set to medium-high heat. Cook for approximately 15-20 minutes, rotating corn every few minutes. Corn is done when it is hot and kernels are soft.
*The key thing we did yesterday was rotating the corn more often. While our other food was cooking, we would just turn the corn every few minutes. By doing this, we got some good grill marks but no areas that were burnt.
We served our corn with hamburgers and grilled pineapple.
Have a great day!
