- 1 Pull the husks of the corn back (do not completely remove them). Remove and discard only the silk.
- 2 Reposition the husks back over the kernels.
- 3 Soak the whole cobs in a pot of cold water for 30 minutes. Be sure the ears are completely covered with water (using a clean brick will work).
- 4 While the corn is soaking, preheat the grill to 350°F or the coals to medium-hot.
- 5 Place the prepared ears of corn on the grill, rotating the corn as needed to keep it from getting charred too much on one side.
- 6 Allow the corn to slowly continue cooking for another 30 minutes.
- 7 Serve with butter.
