Ingredients

  • 4 ears of corn
  • Optional: avocado oil to brush the corn, if grilling without the husk
  • Optional: butter, salt and pepper for topping

Instructions

Without The Husk

  • Remove the husks and silks from each corn. Lightly brush the naked corn with avocado oil or another neutral, high-heat oil.

  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the corn directly on the grill, close the lid, and cook for 10 minutes, rotating every few minutes for an even char.

With The Husk

  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place your corn on the grill, close the lid, and cook for 15 minutes, while rotating every few minutes. The husk will become blackened.
  • Using tongs, remove the corn from the grill and transfer to a plate. Let it cool to the touch before removing the husks and silks.
  • Top the corn with a pat of butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper before serving.
