Love the texture and flavor from grilling the corn this way. The butter was good, too. Next time I'll tweak the butter by adding some chili powder.

I love the smoked flavor the corns get by cooking it this way. I must admit I was sceptical about the flavor until I cooked it myself and it really is GREAT!!! I called and recommended this to my mom.

Excellent blend of flavor's. DH was really WOWed! by this. He kept asking what is that great taste. I didn't tell him it was lemon until he was through eating it. I can't believe I'm the first to rate this dish. Great for the barbeque. A must try. Thanks, Kate in Ontario for posting.
