Sharon this was the best! I used only 4 ears. Instead of softening the butter I melted it, added 1 1/2 Tbsp. cheddar cheese powder(that I bought in bulk form) and kept the chili powder at 1 tsp. since we love the stuff!. Rather than wrapping the ears individually in foil I placed them in a pyrex 8x8 baking pan, pured the butter mixture over the corn, than rolled them to evenly coat. I than covered the pan tightly in foil and baked at 350' for 40 min. DELICIOUS! Thanks so much for sharing this... October 31, 2005

This was quite good but my cheese mixture stuck to the foil and took most of the cheese flavour with it! I think that this would be great if it's cooked at low heat for longer on the top rack or maybe baked in the oven. Once in a blue moon, I will get the packaged mac and cheese and the kids have asked me what I can do with the half packs of powdered cheese (I don't love it on mac). I was finally able to show them! Made for Kittencal's Grilling Game. Thanks Sharon123! :)

We really enjoyed the flavor of the corn. But we did think it was a tad bit on the dry side. I cooked as posted but the cheese mixture decided to attach itself to the foil. I do plan to prepare this again and place the cobs on the outside rim of the grill to see if that works. Thanks Sharon123 for posting.
