Yes Steve, I am now a convert. Until now, I've always opted for the steamed corn-on-the-cob in-husk method. As your book states, "If you follow my huskless technique...it will make you a convert"". Yep, tried it tonight for independence day. I'm a convert.

Tonights menu was made entirely on the grill...

* Pulled smoked Beef Roast (Oak, Hickory, Cherry)
* Grilled baked potatoes coated with butter and kosher salt and wrapped in foil
* Grilled corn on the cob huskless
* Grilled (steamed in a pan) squash and zuchini
* Grilled pineapple

Man, we enjoyed it.

Hey man, glad you signed up on the board.

I guess I'm a convert too. Man that corn was super, along with the potato, veggies, and beef!!!

Add another "me too" to the list. I smoked 6 racks of ribs on Monday, very near perfect, but everyone kept raving about the grilled corn as their favorite part of the meal. I had to remove the husks instead of tying them back as handles due to surface area constraints, but I imagine that presentation would be even better.

My female friend, who usually boils or steams vegetables to a near mushy consistancy, finally bit into the golden brown part of an ear of grilled corn on Sunday. (She usually avoids it) The next thing I heard was "WOW! Is that ever good!" I told her that I've been trying to tell her that since I got the new grill. Now she wants me to grill every ear so that they are golden brown all around. ( I was trying to keep her ears the way she liked it.) At least now I can cook all the ears the same way!

Good Deal. Man, I feel like I'm still tasting it today (fondly - nothing weird there). The irony is I grew up HATING veggies - even corn. Now I like them all of a sudden at 41. Maybe thats what they mean by "life begins at 40".

:D

You can add me to the list as well. There is no better way to cook corn IMO.
