Pseudoscientific Corn on the Cob study

I bought a dozen ears of corn. I did half using the soaked-desilkified-rehusked-direct method, and the other half with the soaked-husk removed-foil method. Foil was better, hands down. Less dessication than with the intact husks. I think the foil allows for better steam production and containment, and therefore more thorough cookage.

    But what about the flavor? Did the foil wrapped still have that egged flavor like the husk wrapped ones?

    Big Daddy,
    Flavor was better in the foil. Besides, with foil all you add is water. With husks, you soak the cobs then brush with oil to preserve hydration. Without oil, the kernels dry out too least that's been my eggsperience.
