On the friday before the 4th, Phillip and I rode over to Climax, GA. to buy some smoked pork chops and sausage at Jones Meats. As we approached Donalsonville, there was many fields of sweet corn that were being gathered. We decided on the way home that we would stop in Donalsonville and buy some corn to grill on the 4th. It had been some time since we had grilled corn, so I googled it and found us a recipe for grilled corn. The corn had already been shucked and most of the silk removed. I removed the rest of the silk and rinsed it off with water. I then put the corn in a large bowl with cold water and soaked it for 20 min. Next, I tore off enough squares of aluminum foil to wrap each of the corn cobs in. Before I wrapped them, I brushed each corn cob with butter and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Phillip put the wrapped corn on the grill over direct heat. He cooked it for 15 to 18 min., rotating every 3-4 min. We brought the corn inside, and I unwrapped each one and brushed with butter again. Delicious buttery corn!
