This sweet Grilled Corn on the Cob is slathered with a homemade garlic chive butter turning it into an outstanding fresh Summer side dish.
How to Prepare Corn for Grilling
While grilling corn isn't difficult, there are a few things you should do in advance to be successful.
- Choose ears that are similar in size for even cooking.
- It's important is to clean the silk carefully from the corn prior to soaking. Inspect the corn carefully, removing any bad spots or kernels.
- Once the husk is pulled back, use a damp paper towel to grab the silk making it easier to remove.
- Pull the husk back over the corn to cover it for soaking and grilling. This will allow the sweet corn to cook more slowly and prevent it from burning. That said, some random kernels may char a bit when turning and that only adds to the flavor.
- The garlic chive butter can be made in advance to give the flavors time to marry. A few hours to overnight works well. Just allow some time to soften before serving.

How to Clean Your Gas Grill
While we tend to grill year-round, our grill definitely gets a workout during the warm months of the year. It's important to be mindful of how clean your grill is and how it performs. Cleaning the inside of the grill is important to prevent contamination of food and to keep the grill components working properly. You can use a stainless steel grill brush to remove any carbonized sediments that collect on the inside of the grill lid. You can also use warm soapy water to clean the grill grates and drip pans after the grill has cooled completely. Use a steel brush or putty knife to remove any cooked on stubborn grease.
