The 4th and Grilled Corn – Thanks Dan!

Everyone say it at once – Thanks Dan!

Dan is my pal from nearly all my life and it was customary when we were in college for Dan and I to throw a humongous party (around) the fourth of July. Dan was my quiet partner in these shenanigans but a major partner in the planning, funding, execution, and clean up of the big day(s). So, it is fitting that Dan continue to play a leading role as we mature. Thus…grilled corn.

Wait, what the!?!

Okay, here’s how it goes together. This past weekend, I received a text from Dan asking if I could tell him how to grill corn because his microwave was acting up. My answer was – of course. And here’s how easy it is.

Ingredients:   Corn


1) Take your corn, husks on, silks undisturbed and submerge it all under cold water for about 5 – 10 minutes.

2) Heat your grill on high heat for those 5 – 10 minutes when the corn is soaking.

3) Transport the corn from the water to the grill and lay on grates.

4) Cover the grill, opening every 3 – 5 minutes to turn the corn.

5) If you have less than 4 ears of corn, grill the corn for 10 – 15 minutes. And if you have more, grill the corn for 10 – 20 minutes.

6) Using a towel or oven mitts, peel the husk and silks off of the cobs. Trash the husks and silks and serve the cobs.

Pretty easy. Very Tasty!


And, just like my buddies and I said the first year Dan bought the keg (because he was the only one old enough to legally do so) – THANKS DAN!
