Corn on the Cob in a BBQ or Oven (without husks)

It's corn season!  Delicious sweet corn is here! Often, when we corn on the cob it comes half-peeled so you can see how the corn looks.  This makes it rather difficult to BBQ the corn in the husks as so many recipes suggest.  So, after a bit of testing, I discovered that you can, indeed, successfully cook corn on the cob on the BBQ by wrapping it in foil - and after our BBQ ran out of propane, I discovered you can also cook it in the oven! Boiling is still an easy corn on the cob cooking solution, but I love making corn on the cob in the BBQ using this method. Your corn is pre-buttered and can be seasoned any way you like! Enjoy!

Makes however many you want!

Remove husks and silks from corn.  Using a large piece of extra wide foil (piece should be ~12" x 24"), place the corn on one side of the foil.  Put 1/2 Tbsp butter in with the corn.  Sprinkle the corn with salt & pepper, or any spices you desire.

Wrap the corn so it's wrapped 2-3 times around with foil (to avoid butter leaking out).  Twist the ends to seal, like on hard-candies OR fold edges onto ends of corn first, then roll (like a burrito wrap).

Cook on the BBQ over medium to medium-low heat (~400F) for 20 minutes, to allow corn to properly steam.  Rotate corn 3-4 times to allow an even cooking.
Cook in the oven at 400F for 20 minutes.  No need to rotate.

Carefully open your hot foil packets.  Enjoy!!!
