Ever had corn on the cob smothered in butter and garlic? BEFORE grilling? If that’s a no, you’ve never lived.

My lovely sister-in-law came to visit me a little while ago with two of her amazing children. We drank margaritas in the sun, laughed till our cheeks hurt, and ate garlic and butter smothered BBQ corn on the cob.

I had never heard of this before! Honestly! I could not believe how delicious it was, and now, will never do corn the same again.

So enjoy this finger-lickin’ recipe and thank you to my amazing sister-in-law, I don’t know what I’d do without you! 🙂

Do you have to soak corn on the cob before grilling?

Do you have to?? Well, no. But should you? I’d say yes. Soaking the corn for at least 30 minutes will really soften up the husks. I always soak my cobs in cold water for 30-60 minutes before barbecuing.

 

How to BBQ corn on the cob

After the cobs have finished their soak, peel back and remove the husks until you have one layer remaining that still covers the kernels. Very gently peel back that last layer but DO NOT REMOVE!

Smother the corn in the butter, then garlic powder and salt. Gently replace the last layer and place on a tin foil ‘boat’ on your BBQ. The boat will stop the butter from leaking out onto the BBQ and making a giant mess.

BBQ for 20 minutes or until the corn is vibrant in colour, turning the cobs every few minutes to ensure even cooking. Discard the last layer of toasty husk and you’re ready to indulge in these delicious Garlic Buttered Corn on the Cobs!

How to BBQ corn on the cob without husks

Accidentally took all the husks off? No problem! After you smother the cobs with butter, garlic and salt, place them on a thick tin foil boat and lightly cover them with more tin foil.

 

How long do you cook corn on the cob on the grill in foil?

Barbecue for 20 minutes or until the corn is fully cooked, turning every few minutes to ensure even cooking.

 

What goes with corn on the cob?

What DOESN’T go with Garlic Buttered BBQ Corn on the Cob? My preference would be a juicy chicken breast loaded with BBQ sauce and a gorgeous Kale Caesar Salad.

They are especially good with some finger-lickin’ ribs or a fully loaded beef burger!

If there are leftovers you can cut the kernels away from the cob and use them in a salad or soup!

Try these with Leftover Rib Naan Bread Pizza or, for a vegetarian meal,Epic Yam Fries with Chipotle Mayo; Both can be barbecued!

Ingredients

  • 3 corn ears
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Instructions

Equipment Needed

  • Tin Foil

Directions

  • I always start by soaking the corn in cold water for 30-60 minutes to soften the husks. Heat up your BBQ. Peel back and remove the husks until you have one layer remaining that still covers the kernels. Very gently peel back that last layer but DO NOT REMOVE! 
  • Smother each cob in 1 tbsp butter, rubbing well to ensure full coverage. Sprinkle the garlic powder and salt evenly between the cobs, massaging the seasoning into the butter. 
  • Gently replace the last layer of husk, place the corn onto a tin foil 'boat'  and move the boat onto your BBQ. The boat will stop the butter from leaking out onto the BBQ and making a giant mess. 
  • BBQ for 20 minutes or until the corn is vibrant in colour, turning the cobs every few minutes to ensure even cooking. Discard the last layer of toasty husk and you're ready to indulge in these delicious Garlic Buttered Corn on the Cobs!
