Easy Corn-on-the-Cob on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I was already addicted to sweet corn-on-the-cob before the Char-Broil Big Easy came along. The Big Easy, though, made my addiction much, much worse. I cannot get enough of it. Just like the name of the cooker, it’s easy to make. I just take a few ears of corn, shuck them, brush on a little butter and add my favorite seasonings. I often make my own seasoning, but I’ve found that McCormick’s Perfect Pinch seasonings make for the perfect corn topping.
Easy Corn-on-the-Cob on the Char-Broil Big EasyCorn-on-the-cob takes about 25 minutes in the Big Easy. It’s sort of hard to overcook so don’t be upset it you let it go a few minutes longer.

I used McCormick’s Perfect Pinch Vegetable seasoning. Anita and I both love it. It doesn’t bury that great corn flavor, just enhances it. Perfect!

Cajun Corn-on-the-Cob on the Char-Broil Big Easy

The Char-Broil Big Easy is a fantastic all-around cooker. And as much as I use it to cook poultry, that’s not all it does perfectly. This Cajun corn-on-the-cob is just another great side dish. As with just about anything on the Big Easy, it’s no-fuss and as easy as can be. The corn comes out packed with spicy buttery goodness, cooked perfectly.
Cajun Corn-on-the-Cob on the Char-Broil Big EasyThere is a nice little kick to Cajun corn-on-the-cob on the Char-Broil Big Easy. If you’re worried it might be too spicy (it’s really perfect to me), cut back on the cayenne and red pepper flake. I wouldn’t eliminate them completely. That little heat balances well with the sweetness of the corn. This corn goes great with my Cajun Creole chicken on the Big Easy.

Corn in Packets on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Nothing beats fresh, in-season corn-on-the-cob. Although there’s lots of ways to cook up sweet corn, I love to add just a bit of flavor, wrap it in foil and toss it into my Char-Broil Big Easy. In no time I am enjoying delicious, sweet, juicy corn. There’s nothing wrong with eating corn with nothing added, but sometimes I like to add a little twist, from Mexican- or Italian-inspired flavors or a bit of smokiness. You can’t go wrong no matter what you add. Or don’t add.
Corn in Packets on the Char-Broil Big EasyChar-Broil makes a few different racks that make it easy to add more cooking space to your Big Easy, so you can cook chicken (or whatever) down below and corn in packets up top. Try out the Big Easy bunk bed basket, for example. Double the space, instantly.
