I recently ate BBQ at a Nor Cal Farmers house who grew several acres of corn.
He and his wife were quite adamant that good corn just needed to be heated though and not "cooked"
and certainly never boiled.
They just simmered their corn for 10 minutes.
It was of course was the best corn on the cob I have ever had...by far.
Plus you did not have to wait for it to cool down to eat it.
It was Fantastic!
What do you Chowhounders think?
