    I always add salt to the soaking water.. forces out any bugs

    No need to remove the silk, it falls right off after grilling. We also soak it for an hour or so. Makes a difference.

    Very tasty but..I trim the ends, soak in cold water and..leave the silk on as well as the husk for Bbq. Once cooked, the silk and husk literally falls off..easily..soo yummy!!��������������������

    Perfect, Rita! I have never been able to do corn on the grill very well, Parts would be to done, the other not so much. This worked just so well, I credit your good directions in steering me in the right direction. This corn is the best!! Didn't get a chance to try the compound butter yet, but still I am in the right direction. Thanks so much, Reets! Made for Diabetic Forum "Smokin' Hot"
