To me, few things say summer like sweet, buttery corn on the cob. Now, the worst way to prepare corn on the cob is to boil away all the flavor. Instead, take it to the grill. Grilling corn is quick and easy and there are so many ways to season it, so fresh cobs can be taken straight from the grill to the plate. These BBQ corn recipes are perfect for any occasion and can be grilled or smoked in small or large batches.
