Thanks for the kind words.
You can search "corn" in the upper left of the opening page and should get a few recipes.
The MAIN ingredient is freshness. Corn starts changing the instant that it is pulled from the stalk. If you cannot control that process, soak the corn in water with ice from the time you get it until you put it on the grill. This retards the conversion from sugar to starch and keeps the shucks moist as well.
Then, if you don't over cook it, it is hard to mess it up. Check for worms, replace the shucks and throw it on a medium grill - about 350° for about 30 minutes, turning occasionally. Use heavy gloves to shuck it, leaving the shucks attached at the end for a handle. Have plenty of butter, salt and pepper handy. Some have sprinkled with additional seasonings, including "Smoky's Legendary Rub" but it is hard to improve on butter, salt and pepper.
