Perfect Grilled Corn
Place the ears of corn in a large bowl of cold water with 1 tablespoon salt for 10 minutes. Heat the grill to medium. Remove corn from the water and pat dry. Place the corn on the grill, close the cover and grill for 15 to 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. Grill until kernels are tender when pierced with a paring knife. Remove husks, slather with butter, sprinkle with salt and enjoy!
