not as garlicy as I had hoped. Kind of dry also. I think if i was to make it again i would save the garlic butter I had rolled the corn in and pour a bit over the corn before eating. also make it would help to put the garlic in a food processor to mince it instead of crushing it. this would bring out more of the garlic flavor in my opinion

This looks very impressive when grilling, however the texure of the breadcrumbs wasn't as yummy as we had hoped.

I made this for the Photo Swap March 2005 and must say, this is a great recipe. I made it just for two, to go with grilled steak. I've always made Corn on the Cob with garlic butter, but never thought to add bread crumbs and then grill them. As we didn't have BBQ weather I put them under the grill/broiler and it worked out just fine. I didn't have any fresh parsley, so I used dried parsley, which also worked well. This will definitely become a regular. Thanks for sharing and I hope you like the photo!
