About this recipe: The best BBQ sweetcorn recipe you'll encounter. The sweetcorn is tender, succulent and totally delicious. Ears of sweetcorn are soaked in brine for 30 minutes, then cooked on the barbecue, brushed with butter and seasoned with salt and pepper.
Try not to soak sweetcorn longer than 8 hours. It becomes soft and very salty.
You can also cook these ears of sweetcorn under the grill.

Great recipe - I soaked my corn in the sugar/salt water for a couple of hours. I used all the sugar and 1/4 cup of salt. I left the husks intact (peeling them back a little and removing a bit of excess silk) because that's how I grill them so the corn basically stems inside the husk. I'm not sure if we had really good corn or if it was the soak, but my husband looked up at me and said he wished we'd grilled more corn. So, we have a winner here and this will be how we soak our corn from now on..... - 30 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Everyone loves sweet corn, but these tasted more like all that sugar and took away from the natural sweetness that is so yummy. My family all felt the same way. Sorry. The only reason I can even give 2 stars is for the grilling. Grilled corn is the best, but I will go back to how I usually do it. I wrap the cleaned cobs in foil with a few small butter pats inside each. The only down side is that you cannot see how they are cooking and when they are done. If you get the right timing down with your grill, they are incredible, though. - 01 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
