  • Outdoor Barbecue Grill



  • Remove husks from corn and thoroughly rinse each piece. Soak the corn cobs in cold water for 15 minutes.
  • Remove corn from water bath and pat completely dry with paper towels.
  • Cut large pieces of aluminum foil, one for each piece of corn, enough to completely wrap and cover each piece. Then place a piece of corn on each piece of foil.
  • Melt butter in the microwave on high for about 20 seconds, or until completely melted. Brush each piece of corn lightly with the melted butter. Then drizzle each piece with lime juice and sprinkle with cilantro, salt, and pepper. Wrap it up in the foil so all the excess juices are still closed in with the corn. (See picture below).
  • Grill over medium heat for about 20 minutes, turning occasionally, remove foil and serve hot.
  • Drizzle with a little extra melted butter just before serving.
