Another random story from the weekend barbecue. At one point I found myself at the sink shucking corn with a woman who was a chef as it turned out. I asked, “what’s the best way to prepare this for a grill?” and she showed me. What you do is, peel back the husk maybe three quarters of the way down, pull away as much of the hair as you can, then push the husk back up and soak for an hour or two before grilling. The soak water boils inside the husk, cooking the corn. Update Check the comments for tips from Steve and Dave. Just in time for the holiday weekend!
