    We pull back the shuck, strip the silk then recover and tie up. Soak in water for a few then on about a 400 grill till done, turning four times. Then salt and butter. Simple.

    As a variation recently we smoked them using hickory with the shuck and silk removed. After cooking we prepared them like old style cut corn only this was already cooked and smoked. Fantastic.

    Cut corn is normally prepared from a raw cob, first you cut then you scrape.

    jon....There are 102 ways to do corn on the egg. :) Some do it in the husk, we prefer ours grilled direct. Just enough extra virgin OO to give it a sheen, some S&P... Onto the grid direct. Roll every couple minutes...takes about 10 minutes total. This particular batch was topped with some butter, chili powder, and freshly shredded parmesean. (don't turn your nose up till you try Have fun with it.

    Only 102? :) I am going to try that. I usually add butter and Raging River.

  • This sounds weird, but I swear it's great. Brush mayo on your cleaned fresh corn, then sprinkle with S & P, your favorite rub (any of Dizzy Pigs), then grated parmesan cheese. Wrap in aluminum foil and throw on the egg.

    Give it a try, and don't tell anyone about the mayo - (you can't taste it after it's cooked).

    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    LC, we like a simple butter compound with finely diced Chili peppers in adobo sauce on cooked corn. Finish with cojita cheese.

    The mayo, cojita and cayenne on corn is a favorite too.

    On the egg corn is fantastic.

    I used to soak but no longer. I just take the corn as I get it and put it on the egg.

    I have cooked them at 300° dome for 20 to 30 minutes. To as high as 400°, raised grid for about an hour.

    One was soaked for 15 minutes and the other wasn't.


    You can tell which was not soaked by the husks. Couldn't tell the difference when eating from either piece.

    Gene, that sounds wonderful. I'll have to give that a try. I like the Mexican twist. Maybe some day you'll share your coveted cornbread recipe?
  • CrimsongatorCrimsongator Posts: 5,795
    All you have to do is ask (notice the absence of Jiffy mix)

    Jalapeno Cornbread
    2 cups self rising cornmeal
    3 Tbs sugar
    2 Eggs
    1/3 cup oil
    1 can (16 oz) cream corn
    1 cup cheddar cheese
    Jalapeno peppers to taste - finely diced
    1/2 cup onions - finely diced
    Mix ingredients (except the milk) thoroughly. Add enough milk to make the mix the
    consistency of pancake batter.
    Bake at 400* until done. Once a knife or fork comes out clean, the cornbread is done.
    Let cool and serve with fresh butter.

    Rats Gene, I thought it ws going to be easy peasy using Jiffy're a deceptive bugger! :laugh:

    Agreed but it needs to cool enough to get out of the skillet and cut. It can still be warm but it is hard to slice when hot.

    Thanks to everyone, I will be grilling my first corn on an egg tomorrow, I enjoy the egghead forum as much as the Corvette Forum

    Just add that I've taken to soaked ears on direct, then shuck. Seems the silk comes off much easier than precooked; removing corn silk is one of my least favorite things to do, right behind prepping fresh shrimp!
