Garlic Old Bay corn is something I have to make for myself. Anita isn’t a fan of Old Bay seasoning, while I am convinced that it is the best thing ever. So while I make her some honey butter corn-on-the-cob on the Char-Broil Big Easy, I load up on this corn heavily flavored (or lightly flavored… it’s up to you) with garlic and of course Old Bay. It’s reminiscent of a crab or shrimp boil but well, with just corn!
You can get quite a bit of corn on the Big Easy at once, specially if you use a Bunk Bed basket or two. Keep in mind that the corn towards the bottom of the cooker might be done before those at the top.

Garlic Old Bay Corn on the Char-Broil Big Easy
You'll need a Bunk Bed basket
or two to cook more corn at once on your Big Easy.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings: 4 servings
- 4 ears corn-on-the-cob husks and silks removed, cut in half
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder or more, to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning I definitely used more since I LOVE Old Bay!
Fire up your Big Easy.
Place the 8 pieces of corn onto pieces of foil.
Place the butter, garlic powder and Old Bay in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir until the butter is melted and the seasonings are dissolved. Brush over the tops of the corn. Rotate and brush the other side of the corn.
Seal tightly in the foil and place into the Big Easy basket.
Cook in the Big Easy for 20-25 minutes or until the corn is tender.
Pimento cheese makes for a great grilled cheese sandwich. Pimento cheese loaded with roasted Hatch chiles makes for an outstanding grilled cheese sandwich. Or dip. Or burger topping. The cheese melts perfectly. And there’s just that slight green chile flavor. Not overpowering, not spicy. Just a really nice pepper flavor. I like that a lot.
If you can’t find Hatch chiles, you can substitute any mild green chile such as a poblano. Or in a pinch you can use canned green chiles. Our market sells 7 ounce cans of roasted green chiles that would work just fine as a substitute in this Hatch chile pimento cheese.

I love to make my own wing sauces, but I have to admit, I’m a sucker for bottled sauces too. Specially when they’re as good as the Smoked Jalapeno Honey wing sauce from Quaker Steak and Lube. Anita I had lunch at a Quaker Steak and Lube on the north side of Cincinnati.
I enjoyed a big ole helping of their fantastic wings tossed in just the right amount of Smoked Jalapeno Honey sauce. And yes, after one bite I decided I was going home with a bottle of the sauce for my homemade wings. Just the right amount of heat and sweet, with a little light smokiness, this sauce is very tasty and not spicy enough to scare off your I-don’t-like-spicy friends.
I would say that I on occasion have a good number of wing sauce bottles on hand. That used to worry me, but honestly, I eat wings so often that they don’t last very long at all. Specially when they are as good as the Smoked Jalapeno Honey wing sauce from Quaker Steak and Lube. I wish they had a restaurant here in Indy. I do love their wings (though they certainly serve a lot more than wings).
I also love Quaker Steak and Lube’s Louisiana Lickers and Arizona Ranch wing sauces.
I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook
that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
