ears of corn (husks removed)
Start by giving your cobs a good base by coating them on all sides with melted butter.
Sprinkle them with garlic, cayenne pepper and a little bit of salt. Be careful with the cayenne pepper. Use just a few pinches on each side for mild, a little more for hotter level.
Wrap each cob tight in a sheet of foil and place on a warm grill.
Depending on your grilling apparatus (charcoal, propane, campfire, etc.), cooking times may vary. If you're using a standard Weber with charcoal, 3 turns at 8 minutes will grill the corn to a nice golden color.
More About This Recipe
- While I love a good 4th of July fireworks display, I like to bring a little "bang" to my bbq with Spicy Grilled Corn.
I love spicy foods. I'll take any opportunity to add some heat to the ordinary. The hotter the better. Bring it on. This year instead of serving up the usual grilled corn on the cob, I thought I'd kick it up a notch with the help of my two favorite ingredients: garlic and cayenne pepper.
The best part about Spicy Grilled Corn (aside from the flavor) is that it's super easy to make. First, you want to make sure to give your cobs a good base by coating them with melted butter to help make the other ingredients stick.
Next, sprinkle them up with garlic, cayenne pepper and a little bit of salt. Warning! Unless you want to start a five-alarm fire on your tongue, you're going to want to watch how much of the cayenne pepper you're using. If you're a heat level 2 kind of person, just a few pinches on each side will do. But if you're like me, shake it so you can see it!
Now wrap each cob tight in a sheet of foil and they're ready to hit the grill!
Now, depending on your grilling apparatus (charcoal, propane, campfire, etc.), cooking times may vary. I use a good 'ol Weber with charcoal, so 3 turns at 8 minutes a turn usually does the trick. The corn comes out golden with a perfect amount of the dark roasted color. There's really only one word to describe: Love!

The Best Way to Eat Corn Is Grilled and Covered in Spicy Aioli
There's one side dish that makes every summertime meal better: corn on the cob. Do us a favor, though. Instead of boiling the ears and then dousing them with butter and salt, make this recipe for grilled corn drizzled with spicy aioli. It's an easy--and absolutely delicious--upgrade.
1 garlic clove, very finely minced
4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
6 ears of corn, husks pulled back or removed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Preheat your grill (get it nice and hot).
2. Make the Spicy Aioli: In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the garlic, paprika and Sriracha to combine. Set aside.
3. Make the Grilled Corn: In a small bowl, mix the butter with the lime zest, coriander and garlic powder to combine. Brush each ear of corn with about 2 teaspoons of the butter mixture.
4. Once the grill is hot, grill the buttered corn until it is well charred on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Season the corn with salt and pepper.
