My method for grilling corn is the easiest ever, and the only way I cook corn on the cob. There's no soaking or removing of the husks. Just toss the corn on the cob in the husks directly on the hot grill grates, cover, and let them steam.
To grill corn, simply place it on a hot grill. I suggest keeping the corn in its husks to steam as it cooks. Close the grill, checking and turning with tongs, every five minutes or so, for around 15-20 minutes.
Remove the husks and silk, then slather with your choice of flavored butters or plain, salted butter. If you prefer a smokier charred corn on the cob, simply add back to the grill after husking for just a little more char.
Don't have a grill? You can still achieve a nice charred flavor by using a cast iron grill pan or skillet. For this method, you will need to husk your corn. Put a little oil or butter in a skillet and get it hot. Place your corn in the skillet and turn every few minutes, getting a nice sear on all sides.
