Steam In The Husk Directions

  • Soak ears of corn in cold water for 30 minutes prior to grilling
  • Trim off the silk ends to prevent burning
  • Preheat Traeger to 400 Degrees – allow to come to full temp before grilling
  • Place the ears of corn on the hot grill with about 2” space in between each cob
  • Turn the ears every 4-5 minutes
  • Total cook time should be around 12-15 minutes
  • Test corn for doneness, peel back the end of the cob, hold the ear using tongs and check a kernel for tenderness. Corn is done when kernels are juicy and tender.
  • Remove the ears from the grill and place onto a cookie sheet
  • Place an ear of corn onto your cutting board and using a sharp chefs knife, trim off the stalk end and the final part of the silk end. This will help the shucking process
  • Using oven or grill gloves, grab the ear of corn and peel back 1 strip of husk
  • Next grab the remaining husk, twist on both ends until loose and then twist all the wab around the cob
  • Pull off the husk and the silk will follow. Any remaining silk will remove easily
  • Season with butter from the Butter Mill and your choice of seasoning
  • Tip – you can also return the shucked corn to the grill to get some final grill color and flavor
    • DO NOT BUTTER if returning to grill
