Work that smoker magic on corn on cob. Be sure to get the corn before the produce person trims off some of the outer husks. The corn must be completely covered by the husk. Use peeled back husks for handles when eating. This recipe multiplies well, and can be used to make corn for a crowd. You will need bagged ice for this recipe to keep the corn cold.

I am a corn-on the-cob junkie and this method of preparation is by far the absolute best. I didn't want to drag out the smoker so I just grilled them for 20 minutes. I also pulled the husks down to remove the silk and then just put the husks back in place. This was just too "DIE" for!!! Read More

Wish I could say that we enjoyed this but it just wasn't for us. We love grilled or smoked corn but we couldn't even taste the smoked flavor because all it tasted like was beer.... and we like our beer! Thanks for sharing with us though:) Read More

Wow! I love cooking with beer and since there's never a shortage of that in this house I thought I'd give this recipe a try...I was pleasantly surprised. This really produces a great tasting BBQ'd corn. So if you thought cookin' with beer was relegated to just meats - think again. I didn't use the smoker but grilled it as always over charcoal and this came out fabulous. So if you can part with your beer give this a try. You'll be glad you did! Read More

We were JUST getting ready to grill when I saw this & it was SO easy! This recipe helps you get rid of the "black gunk" that can get on corn when you grill - The husks not only protect from the "gunk" but they also hold the moisture in (and the beer helps!) so you get that yummy splash! when you bite into this yummy crunchy corn! Happy summer! Read More
