Ahhhhh. Sweet corn season. One of my favorite times of the year. Nothing beats fresh corn on the cob, specially when it’s hot off the grill. But cook that corn on a cedar plank, and you get oh so much more flavor! Whether you want a little or a lot, the cedar plank adds a little aroma and a little taste you just can’t get from ‘just’ grilling corn!
You can’t go wrong with plenty of salt and pepper on cedar planked sweet corn. For a nice spicier change, I prefer to use my favorite rub from AlbuKirky Seasonings. Their red chile rub adds a nice southwestern zing to each and very delicious bite. It’s good stuff for sure!
Cedar Planked Sweet Corn
- cedar plank soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
- 4 ears sweet corn shucked, cut in half
- 4 tablespoons butter melted
- seasoning salt and pepper or whatever you prefer
- Fire up your grill for cooking around 400 F. Depending on how much cedar flavor you want, you may want to char the cedar plank on both sides before adding the corn.
- Combine the melted butter with your favorite seasoning.
- Brush the corn with the butter mixture. Transfer to the plank. I like to stand the corn on end.
- Cook for about 20 minutes or until just tender. Brush with more of the butter mixture every 5 minutes.
- Remove and serve.
