How do you grill corn on the cob without the husk?

Corn on the cob can be roasted without the husk in two different ways. First, you can grill corn directly on the grill. This results in drier corn on the cob with lots of smoky grilled flavor. When grilled directly on the grill, the sugar in the corn caramelizes more, giving it its unique flavor. Second, you can grill corn on the cob in foil. This absorbs the steam and creates a moist corn experience on the cob, but without as much smoky, barbecue flavor.

Can I grill corn husks?

Yes! Corn on the cob can be roasted in the shell. An optional step is to husk and remove the silk from the cob, but you can also grill the cob without removing the silk. To prevent the husk from burning or catching fire, it’s best to soak the corn for 15 minutes to an hour before grilling.
