  • 4 ears corn
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste


  • First, soak your husked corn ears for 30 minutes in a sink full of cold water. (This will helpĀ keep them plump and tender!)
  • When corn is almost finished soaking, fire up your grill! Remove corn from the water and pat dry.
  •  Brush olive oil over the corn, making sure it's evenly coated all over. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place corn on the upper rack of your grill over medium heat. The key is to rotate the corn often, over medium heat, to keep it cooking without drying out. 
  • Cook on the upper rack, continually rotating, for about 12-15 minutes or until you see golden brown spots around the corn.


If you don't have an upper rack on your grill, cook the corn on medium-low heat. Cooking time may be a few minutes longer.
