Grilled Corn on the Cob (in foil)

I cannot believe it is the first week in August already. This time of uncertainty has seemed to last forever and no time at all. Oh, I know it is far from over but as we head into the fall which is my “new year” or time of renewal I have high hopes. Our school district has decided to open about 9-10 days later than the districts around us to see what happens to them first during opening. Right now the plan is to open in September with in person classes or parents can choose a full online option. You cannot switch back and forth between the two, it is one or the other. The in person option does have a hybrid or full online option if needed but that is only with the governor moving the opening phase down a level or two. It will be interesting. I keep saying I give it three weeks to a month to see if they close again between the flu and Covid 19.

In the mean time we are looking forward to all the great foods of fall. We got some of the first corn in our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share. I forget how much we love corn on the cob this time of year. There were only 6 small ears. It is still a bit early but we were so happy to see them in the basket.

Verdict: This is delicious! If you love buttery ears of corn this is the best way to cook it. Each came out perfectly done and we had no need to add extra butter. A hit of salt and black pepper when the ears were done and it was amazing! We each got an ear and a half and wished we had more. I see lots of corn on the cob for the rest of the season!

Grilled Corn on the Cob (in foil)

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 6-8 Fresh ears corn on the cob, husked and silk removed
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • Salt, pepper,


  1. Make 6-8 strips of foil – 1 for each ear of corn, long enough to wrap around each ear of corn and have the ends twisted.
  2. Lay each cob on the foil.
  3. Rub each ear with about a tablespoon of butter.
  4. Roll up in the foil. Do this until all of the corn is covered in foil. Squeeze and twist the ends together so no butter leaks out as it melts.
  5. Place on the grill on about medium heat for 20 minutes turning occasionally.
  6. Make sure you are careful when unwrapping – these are hot!
