Loved all of your tips. I was waiting to make grilled corn on the cob but we’ve had constant rain. After reading your post I decided to make the corn in the oven. It was delicious and I certainly didn’t miss the thrill of the grill.
This is one of my very favorite ways to make corn. I love that I can make a big batch to enjoy with dinner then to have additional to add to my favorite salads.

Great idea! Not everyone has a grill and fresh corn is best when it isn’t boiled. I’m sure looking forward to corn season!
Nothing beats fresh corn on the cob. This is such a great way to prepare it. So much better boiling it in a pot.
