Nice. Corn has been really good this year. I've done several times but not for a few weeks. Going to be traveling back roads of NW Indiana a week from next Friday. Will be on lookout for farm stands. Want corn and musk melons for sure + whatever else I find.

Sure could use a couple more ears 'bout now.

Mmmm...love grilled corn. Haven't been eating as much of it this summer as in years past, Doc's orders. Might have to sneak some in this week, though.

Me neither, but sometimes I think that if I eat any more corn this season I'm gonna turn into a silo. :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Bob, have you tried the mayo instead of butter on it yet?

We've had mayo a couple of times. I find it OK for a change from the usual, I prefer butter, but most times nothing at all. The corn we had Monday was really good so I ate it straight from the grill without any seasoning or butter. MMMmmm!

It's interesting that since I started grilling corn, most of the time I don't top it with anything at all either. That's especially true of corn I grill in the husk as it's very sweet. Corn I grill with the husk off might sometimes get a little bit of butter and salt as I find it a little bit tougher.

However, if I'm at someone's house and they serve boiled corn, I almost always have to reach for the butter and seasonings.

Any time you can eat it straight up, you know it's dad gum good.

You got that right Leatherneck. :) Sometimes I'll go buy an ear of corn at lunchtime, shuck it and eat it raw. So far this year we only gotten one batch that was less that excellent. It's been a good corn year around here (where ever it comes from). The picture with the bowl of butter, it was used for basting while grilling. Ate the corn without adding anything else once it was removed from the fire.

So happy to see corn grilled with husk off. That's how you caramelize the natural plant sugars. Just returned from a trip to a land where people still grill their corn wrapped in foil. Yikes!

That's one thing that I always noticed about the Reynolds sponsorship spot at the start and end of Primal Grill episodes: the foil-wrapped grilled corn! :lol:
