The flavor of freshly-roasted corn is enhanced with the addition of spice rubs, compound butters and flavored salts before your ears hit the grill.


Chili Lime Grilled Corn (naked ear version)
Mix 1 Tbs. chili powder with 1/2 cup lime juice for every 6 ears of corn.
Husk corn and soak ears in water for 10-15 minutes.
