  • For perfect corn, before soaking, peel back the husk enough to remove most of the silk.
  • This will prevent the silk from sticking to the corn during the cooking process.
  • Roll the husks back up and soak the corn for about an hour in a pot of cold water that is seasoned with a half cup each of sugar and salt.
  • This will add a lot of flavor to the roasted corn.
  • For even more flavorful corn, try this technique after soaking: Brush the corn with a mixture of one tablespoon olive oil, two cloves of minced garlic and two tablespoons of fresh-squeezed lemon juice.
  • Roll the husks back up and throw the corn on the grill for about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Another corn-seasoning tip is to squeeze fresh lime juice over the corn and sprinkle it with chili powder and black pepper.
  • For another butter variety, make chili butter to top the corn by mixing one tablespoon of melted butter with a clove of minced garlic and a teaspoon of chili powder.
