    How do you keep corn warm while grilling something else?

    Just goes to you show that no one is EVER too old to learn a new thing or two. I've never grilled corn before as I have always steamed it in my steamer, but I wanted to try grilled corn and did a search on the internet and this recipe caught my eye. I tried it and we LOVED it! Thanks Red Apple Guy for submitting this wonderful recipe.

    Never grilled corn before, had always boiled it and added flavour afterwards. This is simple, easy, quick, delicious, and how I will make my corn from now on. Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi. I decided to rub the corn with a cold salted butter stick and add salt and pepper prior to grilling. It was absolutely amazing! My husband, a professed life long hater of corn are 3 of these!


My wife and I live just outside of Atlanta, GA. Two daughters live in town, one with my two grandsons. My son is living in California. I'm a retired environmental manager at a manufacturing facility. My Mom and Dad would have loved this site. Dad was a huge collector of recipes and was in the food industry. Mom was a terrific cook as well. Another influence was a roommate at the Universtiy of Arkansas that was an excellent cook. Today I enjoy barbecuing and grilling year round and cooking in general. My latest adventure is in bread baking. I'm loving it and going to school on it right here on the bread forum. I'm active in a terrific church and also love fly fishing and fly tying.
