I didn't put the corn in water. I only mixed the olive oil with red chili powder and brush on the cob and on the barbecue.

This was really good. I usually use butter on the corn but the olive oil was a nice "healthier" touch. For the red chili powder, I used ground Ancho Chili which was rather mild. I think that the seasoned oil would be great on grilled corn as well.
