Roasting Corn

chau | May 14, 2008 12:39 AM

Would love advice on how to roast corn over an open fire pit. I love that smoky flavor and would like to replicate it at a barbecue on the beach! We will be using a firepit as much as possible for cooking, but I don't know much about roasting corn in the fire pit.

Do I just soak the corn for about 20 minutes in water, leaving the husk and silk intact, and then just place them next to the flames? Should I wrap it in aluminum? Would appreciate your advice. Thank you!
