Grilling corn report

pitu | Sep 2, 2005 12:11 PM

Last night we had the best corn on the cob on the grill, and we soaked it in salt water for the hour or so between grocery and grill. I figured cold water would help keep the sugar in the corn from turning to starch.

I de-silked it but left on the husk, soaked it, and grilled it husk on . .. and was finally able to get a streak or two of char going without overcooking it. I hate overcooked corn, and have had it too many times from my very reliable grill master S.O. Some of the inner leaves were a little steamy/damp and the outer leaves were burnt black.

Just thought I'd add my 2 cents to the soak/not soak grilling brain trust...
