  • 6 corn ears entire without leaves or beard
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the grill.
  • In a pot with water, add some salt and soak the ears of 10-15 minutes.
  • Grill the cobs over indirect heat, for 5 minutes, turn them and grill for 5 more minutes.
  • Put the cobs over direct heat and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Do not be afraid if you char them a little: you’ll get a better, more complex flavor.
  • Spread the cob with butter and season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve hot.
