Weeknight Corn on the Cob

The following is my technique for “Weeknight” corn on the cob. I agree it is not as good as Corn cooked entirely on the grill but gives a good product then can be done when doing a steak or other quick cook.
The main helper is a Microwave oven. I apologies for this vulgarity.
Back when microwaves ovens where a new thing, corn on the cob was made by wrapping in waxed paper and cooking for 3 or 4 minutes per ear. Fast and about as tasty as boiled corn.
My technique is to start the corn this way i.e. wrapped in wax paper cooked for 2 minutes on the microwave then with waxed paper removed, put on the egg and turned frequently to caramelize it. If you have the time do the whole cook on your egg. If it’s Tuesday night and your doing a fast cook try this method.
Corns cheap so if you don’t like it this way it’s not a big waste.
