Grilled in Husk Corn on the Cob

Follow Me on Pinterest

With summer upon us, I thought now was a great time to write a post about how to grill corn on the cob in the husk.  The husk imparts an earthy, sweet and slightly charred flavor that is hard to replicate.  Best of all, it’s really easy.  Use this recipe all summer long for great tasting corn on the cob!
