  • Stir together macadamia nut oil and melted butter in a bowl. Season with garlic, rosemary, sage, basil, thyme, salt, and pepper; stir in Parmesan cheese.

  • Drain corn and pat dry. Spread butter mixture evenly over each ear of corn, and place each piece on a square of aluminum foil. Tightly wrap each ear and puncture to allow excess steam to escape while grilling.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.

  • Grill the corn cobs until tender, about 20 to 30 minutes, turning frequently. Remove from the grill and check for doneness; if the corn is not done, continue cooking an additional 5 minutes.

Fantastic! I sampled the butter mixture as I was applying to the corn it was so good I made more to put on sliced potatoes and onions - wrapped them in foil and grilled alongside the corn! (hint - to make the mixture easier to spread on the corn pop unmelted butter in the microwave for 20 seconds then mix the other ingredients in. It makes a thicker paste and is easier to spread) Read More

This was too "herby" for my group. The idea was good if I would have stuck to garlic salt and pepper parm cheese. These are just our personal tastes. I did love how the corn cooked in the foil on the grill. Read More

This is my 2nd review after having some of this excellent basting sauce leftover. I sliced some red potatoes and micro'd them for 3 minutes tossed with the yummy sauce placed in foil on med heat on the bbq turned to not burn about 10 min. I micro'd them because I remembered about the leftover sauce right when I started some bugers so if you plan ahead you can prob just bbq them longer without the pre-prep. OMG! They were soooo delish! You could prob use this sauce on chunks of scrap wood and it would be wonderful! Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

I absolutely LOVE this recipe!! Forget the macadamia oil - it's not needed! This is great on corn on the cob even good on canned corn! We drain canned corn & put on aluminum foil. Pour some of this all over wrap up in double layer of the foil & grill it when we don't have corn on the cob handy and it's EXCELLENT. The other thing we love it on is diced boiled yukon gold potatoes. Put them in a foil packet w/ this & grill - I swear I completely forget about the steaks that are right beside them on the plate.

Fantastic! For over 30 years I've grilled corn in foil with only butter salt and pepper. Now I have a new recipe. For those having trouble getting the corn just right you need to time your grill. I rotate my corn 1/4 turn every 6 minutes for even cooking. My old grill required 8 minutes per side. So try this recipe several times until you get the timing right.:-) Read More

Fantastic. Great taste. Great because you can make it ahead before your company arrives. Good with any meat grilled. I even used the cheap canned parmesean I had on hand and it was fantastic (with EV Oil). Have made 3 times now and company always wants the recipe. It's the only way I'm going to grill my corn from now on. Read More

This was the most tender corn I have ever made. I soaked in water for about 2 hours then brushed with mixture then grilled for about 30 minutes. Hubby loved it but got mixed reviews from the rest of the family. Will make again but will probably play around with the spices a little to meet the tastes of the whole family. Read More

This is absolutely the best grilled corn. Serve this at a home BBQ and your friends will love it. It's better than any grilled corn I have ever had and I LOVE grilled corn. I can't believe I haven't found this recipe until now. To the ones who have already tried this--Don't you wish all recipes were this good. Read More

Simply delicious! There's nothing quite like grilled corn on the cob during the summer. I soaked my corn in cold water mixed with a little sugar and salt and left the corn in the husks. I softened the butter and used a little olive oil since I didn't have macadamia nut oil on hand and then added the rest of the ingredients making a spread. I grilled the corn as I usually do in it's husks and when it came off the grill I spread the butter mixture over top. It's definitely a savory herb mixture to compliment roasted corn - YUM! Read More
