This is the way I've been grilling sweet corn for years. I season the ears with course salt and fresh ground black pepper after spraying with cooking spray and before grilling.

This was so good!! I was visiting a friend who was grilling the evening meal and had corn on the cob to be one of the sides. I remembered this recipe and wanted to (and did) throw my shucked corn on the grill while the meat was still cooking. I could have made a meal out of this grilled corn. Best grilled corn I ever had. Thanks Red Apple Guy for posting this recipe

Perfect! Simple and tastes great. Love having my corn "carmelized" a little like this.
