Grilled Corn on the Cob

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Ash from Philly was in town after a whirlwind weekend in Mexico with his buddies. We had a little barbecue at our place to celebrate his visit and grilled some amazing corn on the cob. Steve and I had been at the Farmer's Market that morning. I looked around for something fresh and intriguing, as I usually do at the market, and found some beautiful fresh local corn. I took it home, soaked it in cold water for an hour or so and proceeded to peel away the outer layers of the husk, leaving a couple of layers for insulation. Steve tossed it on a medium-hot gas grill and turned it frequently for about 8 minutes. I set up a fabulous array of toppings — lime wedges, butter, olive oil, sea salt, pepper, cayenne, smoked paprika and my homemade barbecue dry rub! The husks and silks peeled away easily and the toppings were perfection! My dry rub was the hit of the party... more on that another day soon! Until then... Peace, Love and Good Food!
