Default You Need to Try This. Please Trust Me!

I have become a fan of Paula Dean after seeing her vacation show last week, so I started taping all of them. Today she had a barbeque, and did something with corn I have never seen before.

Since I was having grilled food, and corn, I thought I would try it. Next month when the corn is at its peak here, it will go off the charts! Even with mediocre corn, it's to die for.....NOW TRUST ME!

Smear mayonaise all over the ears of corn...yes I said mayo, now settle down

sprinkle with parmesan cheese, chilli powder and salt and pepper, I used just salt.... wrap in tin foil, & grill for about 25 minutes or so. depending on size.........

And sit back and take compliments, and people asking you, what's on this delicious corn? Even for people who DON"T like mayo, they don't know what it is....no one guessed it..! ENJOY!

Sounds delish Trip, and as much as I love corn, I can't eat it anymore due to diverticulosis. But for the rest of my family, might give it a try! Do you wrap the corn in foil before grilling, or just grill it "naked"?

Donna, if you leave it on long enough to steam, and not really grilled, you will love it...mine was not charred at all, and really did not have a grilled taste.

Thanks, Trip, I will try this. We never boil corn on the cob in water; we husk it, place on a plate and microwave for 5 or 6 minutes.
Another grill tip: in foil, slices of green pepper, vidalia onions, sm. can of shrimp + mushrooms. Plain, or a little worchestershire sauce. Grill for ten minutes or so. Getting hungry here!

I never say yuck until I try it so I will. I'll let you know in about 30 minutes.

Take care,
Mike

PLEASE be careful when you remove the corn in the foil from the BBQ

Mayonnaise contains a lot of oil, if it leaks from the foil you are going to have a nasty burn

It wasn't bad. I would use a less sweet, sweet corn. The "super sweet" variety that is common in this area may not work as well.

Take care,
Mike

our local corn is just coming in, yum,yum. We always grill our corn. What you do is, peel back the husk, take out as much hair as possible. Soak the corn in cool water for 10 minutes. Place the corn-husk and all on the grill, set to medium. Grill 7-10 minutes each side or until the husks turn slightly brown. It will be very hot when you take it off the grill, so use mitts to peel the husks. YUM,YUM, YUM

They (the food channel) say you don't have to soak the corn before you grill it. I love corn in the husk cooked on the grill. The last time I did it I did not soak the corn and I had a hard time keeping the husks from burning badly. So, I am with LisaK, soak the corn first that way you can keepit on the grill longer and the natural sugars in the corn work their magic
