Like Leezah, I used salted butter and did not salt the corn. The corn turned out tender in the alloted time. We felt the mixture did not add any extra flavor. It was just corn.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup butter, melted (no substitutes)
  • 2 tablespoons snipped chives
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 12 teaspoons lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 ears sweet corn


  1. Combine all ingredients; except salt, pepper and corn.
  2. Shuck the corn and rinse it. Cover each ear with butter mixture; salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Wrap in foil (making sure to not rip it and make sure you crimp the ends).
  4. Grill, covered, for 20 minutes, turning every 5 over medium hot coals.
  5. Note: I use charcoal and I don't place them over the center but more around the edge of the charcoal line.
