    Aluminum foil should be avoided whenever possible so why not use husks! Soak for a few minutes in water, pull open a side and add butter and seasonings . More and more Studies show the dangers to our health from aluminum.

    Do you actually wrap the corn in the foil or leave the foil open as the picture shows? Sorry, I’m a literal cook - words say one thing, photo shows another. Thanks

    Pretty good, I bought 7 ears of corn as HEB was having a sale that you get 7 for a buck! I used spray butter and original Lawry’s seasoning salt and they came out great! I did go up to about 35ish minutes though, as others suggested. I think that’s the only change to make to the recipe is just add a bit more time to the roast/bake process.

    Do not remove the husk. By leaving the husk on the corner is super sweet
    You can just leave the corn in the husks and throw it in the oven. The husk insulates and comes right off after baking. No need for foil. The husk will get very dark and crispy looking, don't worry the corn inside is fine.

    Much better than water-logged cobs boiled in water. Do remember to place a baking sheet underneath to catch any butter that may seep through the foil. Thanks for sharing a great technique! :)

    I'd recommend keeping them in the oven for at least 35-40 minutes. Open the foil wrap after 20 mins so they catch a little "tan") I buttered them in olive oil and garlic salt. Worked out GREAT. Will not waste bottled water to boil corn ever again.

    Simple is throw the ears in oven with husks and cook for 30min. Works everytime, much easier to de-husk afterwards!

    It's just corn with butter. Try rubbing some mayo on it when it's done then sprinkle with anchovies chili powder and feta cheese

    Boil the corn first, 15min. Then season..oven roast.
