Lemon Pepper Corn on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Chicken is my favorite thing to cook on my Big Easy. Corn-on-the-cob is my second most favorite. You can season it a million ways and no matter what, it always comes out sweet and tasty. Like this lemon pepper corn on the Char-Broil Big Easy. This is why the arrival of sweet corn season is such a happy time for me.

It Couldn’t Be Easier

You cannot screw up lemon pepper corn on the Char-Broil Big Easy. Well, you could if you let it overcook, I guess. But, it’s pretty unforgiving. If you’re not sure that it’s quite done, just life up a piece and poke a kernel with a toothpick. If the toothpick inserts with just a little resistance and the kernel ‘pops’, you’re good-to-go.

Corn-on-the-cob on the Big Easy is also great with lime pepper seasoning. As good as my garlic Old Bay corn!

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

The Timing Isn’t Super Critical

Corn-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. My wife and I both love it. It doesn’t bury that great corn flavor, just enhances it. Perfect! You can of course just use salt and pepper.

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 on the Char-Broil Big Easy 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.

Light On Heat, Heavy On Flavor

There 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.

The bunk bed basket lets you double the amount of cooking space you have on your Big Easy. And it’s easy to take in and out of the cooker too!

Also try my Buffalo blue cheese and honey-butter corn on the Big Easy. Nothing is easier than making corn on a 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 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 to this corn in packets on the Char-Broil Big Easy. Or don’t add.
