Grill Frozen Corn On The Cob
- aluminuim foil
- corn on the cob
- salt and pepper
- additional seasoning
- Preheat your grill to medium heat. If using a gas grill, preheat with all burners on medium. For a charcoal grill, light the charcoal and let it burn until the coals are covered with gray ash.
- Remove the frozen corn from its packaging. If desired, brush the corn with melted butter or olive oil to enhance the flavor and prevent sticking. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and any additional seasonings or spices of your choice.
- Place the frozen corn directly on the grill grates. If desired, you can wrap each ear of corn in aluminum foil for easier handling and to prevent excessive charring. Close the grill lid.
- Grill the corn for approximately 10-15 minutes, turning the ears occasionally with tongs to ensure even cooking. The corn is ready when the kernels are tender and slightly charred. Adjust the cooking time based on your desired level of char and tenderness.
- If you prefer a richer flavor, you can baste the corn with melted butter or your favorite sauce using a basting brush during the last few minutes of grilling.
- Once the corn is cooked to your desired level, remove it from the grill using tongs. Let it cool for a minute or two, then serve immediately. You can enjoy the grilled corn on its own or add additional butter or seasonings to taste.
