Kittencal's Foil-Wrapped Grilled Corn

"You may adjust all amounts to suit taste, I like to use seasoned salt for this but white salt will do fine -- to kick this up a notch, in a small saucepan or microwave melt 1/2 cup butter, mix in 1 tablespoon mustard, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper and 2-3 teaspoons horseradish, brush on the corn then wrap in foil and grill as stated :)"

Ready In:




  • Place each corn on top of one piece the heavy-duty foil.
  • Brush each ear generously with soft butter.
  • Season lightly with seasoned salt or white salt and black pepper.
  • Wrap the corn then seal the foil loosely but leave room for expansion, then cut a very small hole in the foil to allow steam to escape.
  • Grill over medium coals for about 15-20 minutes (the larger ears may take a little longer).
  • Unwrap very carefully and serve.
  • Delicious!

Questions & Replies

  1. This can obviously be baked in the oven as well but, at what temp. and for how long?


  1. Ahh.. Another great recipe from Kittencal! I've done it just slightly different. When I'm in a rush, and I'm not grilling.. Place corn in center of foil, butter it, sprinkle salt and pepper.. Which all seems pretty close to yours.. Then I wrap and put it in the oven with whatever I'm cooking for dinner.. :) Oh so good!! :) Its great! Thanks for posting!
  2. No need for a 'hole' in the foil. Good way to dry out the corn, especially if they are smaller ears. Always turn them 1/4 turn every 7-10mins unless you only want one side to have that 'grilled' flavor and only 1/2 cooked at only 15 mins per recipe. Hence why no 'hole' is needed as well.
  3. Great basic recipe! It was very easy and the corn turned out juicy and delicious. This is going to be my go to recipe for corn on the grill from now on. Thanks!??
  4. I wonder if this would work with olive oil instead of butter?
  5. Well, if your Corn isn't any good it doesn't matter how you cook it, it will NOT TASTE SWEET!! Another absurd thing in life and so commonly misunderstood!!!
