Easy Delicious Roasted Corn on the Cob

They don't call them "roasting ears" for nothing. Forget everything you've been told about roasting corn on the cob, this is the easy and fool-proof way to roast that perfect ear. You should use a good charcoal grill (not gas) for the best flavor, the kettle kind is best. The husks and silks will come off with ease when the corn is cooled. Trust me, do NOT remove the husks and stuff butter or other junk in there, let nature do it's thing on the hot grill.
