Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak the corn in salt water for several hours to get the shucks moist. (Add 2 Tbs. salt to 1 gallon of water).
  2. In a medium bowl combine mayonnaise, butter, sugar, lime juice, chili, garlic and pepper until the ingredients are well mixed.
  3. Grill the corn, with the shucks intact, over hot coals or high gas burners on the grill, turning frequently, until done, about 30 minutes. The shucks will often turn dark/black but will protect the corn.
  4. Peel the shucks back, one at a time, until most of the corn is exposed and then remove the silk. With a pastry brush lavishly coat the corn with the spiced mayonnaise-butter mixture.
  5. Serve with shucks tied together like a handle.

Yummy! I loved the flavor and used the eaten cobs to soak up the rest of the juice and sucked the juice right out of the cob! Thanks Nimz!

I was just sure I'd love this recipe from reading the other reviews, but I just didn't care for the butter/mayo. I really did enjoy the corn prepared this way versus the way I normally do grilled corn so I consider this a success for that alone. I followed the recipe exactly as indicated, but just did not care for that combination of flavors with the corn. ... Sorry, ~Nimz~.
