Barbecuing corn

RE: Barbecuing corn
OHR I have the best luck soaking the corn in salt water (1 cup salt to 1 Gal water) for an hour before....fire up the grill and roast them in the husks over a medium grill turning frequently. Heres the catch....don't be afraid to let it roast up, the husks will turn black around the edges but better that then the corn. About 10-12 mins on a hot grill. The bottom line is that you need great corn. When you buy it check these few things...smell it...does it smell like that sweet corn you love so well? Check the color. Is it a nice peaches and cream color and third and most important are the kernels consistent throughout and are they uniform in size....if they are too big they will be tough or bitter, same if they are inconsistent in size. Early on in the year the corn is coming from who-knows-where and is usually bitter and tough. But later on after the 4th it really starts to sweeten up. Depending on the growing season throughout the states. We (Michiganders) get the good stuff by August. Hope that helps. Big Grin
