Much better than water-logged cobs boiled in water. Do remember to place a baking sheet underneath to catch any butter that may seep through the foil. Thanks for sharing a great technique! :)

I'd recommend keeping them in the oven for at least 35-40 minutes. Open the foil wrap after 20 mins so they catch a little "tan") I buttered them in olive oil and garlic salt. Worked out GREAT. Will not waste bottled water to boil corn ever again.

It was a simple quick recipe that was delicious! I used extra virgin olive oil, garlic powder, & Italian dressing...with sea salt and cracked pepper. Yummy!
