Barbecuing corn

RE: Barbecuing corn

I found this recipe sort of backhanded. I have a half dozen of Jamie Purviance's cookbooks for the Weber grills, and in one of them is a recipe for orzo salad with grilled vegetables. We "Hoover" the salad whenever we make it, if that's any indication. The dressing and vegetable marinade is a mix of olive oil, dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar and minced garlic. (I can post the full recipe on request.) At any rate, I have been using this marinade on the ears of corn (husk completely removed), and grill them over direct medium heat. Yes, the kernels do get a bit browned up, but they never taste burnt. Four minutes on three sides is usually enough to nicely grill the freshest of corn, and we usually all fight over what's left. Wink

One other recipe, again over direct medium heat, is to make a paste of butter, grated parmesan cheese and garlic, perhaps with a little basil or parsley. Some of the butter drips off, but it still comes out quite good, and that little bit of crunchy left-over parmesan...good stuff!

I usually find that I don't need much to marinate the corn--I brush it on and rotate it. It sinks in between the kernels a little if you repeat this a few times over the course of an hour.

Intuitively you'd think it won't work so well, grilling a bare-nekkid ear of corn directly over the coals, but it works well and is a nice change from boiling it.
