One of my favorite vegetables to cook outside is corn. Personally, I like to cook mine directly over the fire. The direct heat produces some tasty grilled kernels, and if cooking over coals or hardwood, the corn will absorb some smoke flavor.
Step 1 - Buy fresh corn from your local grocery store
Look for cobs that have clean green husks and no brown spots.
Step 2 - Clean and cut
Start at the top (where the silk is brown) and remove the husk and silk. Trim off the top portion where the kernels are not filled out, and remove the stem on the bottom of the corn. Rinse with water to remove any remaining silk.
Step 3 - Prepare the basting mixture
Melt 1 stick of butter in a microwave safe dish. Then add 1 teaspoon of lime juice, and one teaspoon of Pedal to the Medal. Mix thoroughly.
Step 4 - Grill the corn
Place corn directly on the grill and baste regularly with butter mixture. Turn corn frequently to ensure even cooking. With a fire temp around 350, the corn will take about 10 minutes to cook.
Step 5 - Season and Serve
Sprinkle some Classic Cruiser (for the kids) or Pedal to the Metal (for the adults) and serve.
