Corn on the cob

How do you cook corn on the cob on the egg? Do you wrap it in foil, do you take the husks off or leave them on. What temp and how long?

    I soak the corn for 10 min to 30 min and put it on a raised grid & cook for 10 to 25 minutes.

    The only thing I do to the corn is cut any long excess silk. Otherwise leave the corn alone.

    Lots of butter and other spices available for eating. Most asked for around here is normal S&P, Lemon Pepper, Garlic & Onion, and some different chili and other pepper powders.

    It is best in the husks.Peep back the husks,remove the stringy stuff and put husks back on.I prefer evoo instead of butter,but that's just me.300* for 20-30 minutes directly on grid.Enjoy :)

    Just wanted to say THANKS I cooked silver queen corn and it was GREAT. Forgot to take pictures but the wife did say that it smelled like the fair when I brought the corn in.

    I cut off excess silk and throw it on the Egg, don't soak, don't peel and try to get the husks back on. If indirect, 40-60 min at 350 dome, if direct, keep turning every 10 min and get a char all around. -RP
