Grilled corn


  1. Pull back the husks and remove silks with your fingers or a toothbrush and replace the husks.
  2. Soak the corn in cold water for 30 min.
  3. Heat your grill to medium-high and add the corn. Rotate every 5 minutes to avoid burning and cook until tender — 30 mins.  
  4. Melt your butter in a separate dish and season with paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. 
  5. Remove from the heat, wearing protective gloves to peel back the husks, and brush generously with the garlic butter mixture. 

Serve with burgers, steaks, or by itself with more delicious toppings like bacon, cheese, or whatever you want.
