Smokey Grilled Corn on the Cob With Cajun Butter

READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Carefully remove the "silks" from the cornhusks (keeping the husks intact).
  • Place the corn cobs with the silks removed in a large pot of COLD water (the corn should be completely covered with the cold water).
  • Soak the corn for 1 hour.
  • In the meantime prepare the cajun butter, by mixing all of the cajun butter ingredients together, adjusting ingredients to taste).
  • Remove the corn from the water and shake off any excess moisture.
  • Pull husks back gently.
  • Smear the butter (with your hands) over all sides of the corn.
  • Pull the husks back over to cover corn.
  • Place the corn on a baking tray large enough to hold the cobs.
  • Preheat only ONE SIDE of the barbecue to 275 degrees or to low temperature.
  • Leave the other side of the grill off.
  • Place the corn on the tray onto the side of the grill that has NO heat.
  • Close lid, and cook the corn for about 30 minutes (the corn kernels will turn a bright yellow colour, and the butter will be fully absorbed into the flesh of the corn).
  • Remove from the grill and serve immediately.
