I have a catering to do on Saturday. The not so wee lad finally returned my call to tell me he can not help like he said. I've got thoughts and words that I will not say here. :whistle: :angry:
Not happy to hear that.
I've got 85 ears of corn. I know my goal on the amount of time it will take me to shuck 'em all. The kid at the store gave me his. A few other chef friends gave me theirs.
What do you all think?

    I think Tony could be close, but if you consider what obstacles could pop up (responding to forum posts, phone calls, emptying the trash bag several times) I am guessing an hour 5 minutes. Now if the forum were to cease to exist during the shucking...3 days :lol:

    Molly, are you going to grill the corn?? If so, don't shuck it at all, snip off the tassles, soak the ears in a tub of water for an hour, then grill them, 350ish for 30-40 min, good stuff! Wish We could come help you! ;) ;)

    No grilling the corn. Keeping it simple. 65 pounds of pork will be on by 3ish friday afternoon. Wedding at 4 on Saturday.

    Grill entact, peel when done. Shuck time Zero. Just like peel and eat shrimp. Enjoy. :)
  • one hour and 3 minutes.
  • fire eggerfire egger Posts: 1,124
    1 hour for shucking, should be a 2 beer job, add 20 minutes for beers,total time 1:20!!
  • ChokeOnSmokeChokeOnSmoke Posts: 1,787
    3 pulls per ear, so that's about 15 seconds each.
    Now the math: 15 sec x 85 corn = 1275 seconds or 21.15 minutes. Should be no problem :laugh:

    I think you have it about right Kari, I was thinking along the same lines. :laugh:

  • Wait a second. If you got that many ears, why do you need to shuck the husks off? Just soak them in a bucket - er - probably more than one - for like an hour or 2, trim the ends - or leave them as-is, then pop them on the grill. I don't have too many pictures of this, but here is one, with some chicken going at the same time.

    In the same time as you can drink, say 3 beers, they will be prepped.

    If you want to serve them "all natural", leave the stem on, and leave the burnt husks on. For a more interesting way to serve, just peel the husk back, and don't take it off, since the husk becomes a handle -- you know, like they do at the county fair.

    Throw the corn over the fence. Go back to the store and buy a bunch of green bananas. They are easier to shuck.
  • You got some good answers, Molly. I would enlist your neighbors and knock it out in 1/2 hour. Good Luck and I hope you get some help with transport.

    Run down to your local Harbor Freight, pick up an industrial sandblaster for $29.99; four minutes, tops!
