Grilled Corn on the Cob

grilled corn 24 ears corn, in husk

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 teaspoon lime zest

1 tablespoons lime juice

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

In a small bowl, combine butter, lime zest and juice, chili powder, garlic and salt and pepper; set aside.

Carefully peel back husk from the ear, without detaching from the bottom, remove silk from corn, fold the husk back around the ears and soak in water for 30 to 45 minutes. Make sure to weigh down the ears so that they are fully submerged.

Preheat a grill to medium, indirect heat. Remove ears from water, drain, open husk, dry ears with paper towel and spread butter mixture evenly on corn. Fold husk back over corn and grill, turning often, for 35 minutes (change heat to medium-high for the last ten minutes of grilling). You can wrap corn in foil for 15 minutes and then unwrap and put over open flame for 15 minutes.
