Just goes to you show that no one is EVER too old to learn a new thing or two. I've never grilled corn before as I have always steamed it in my steamer, but I wanted to try grilled corn and did a search on the internet and this recipe caught my eye. I tried it and we LOVED it! Thanks Red Apple Guy for submitting this wonderful recipe.

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.
