Summertime Grilled Corn

If there is one ingredient that defines summer for my family, it's corn. From the first memorial day day pool party to the last labor day barbecue, if we are grilling, we are usually making grilled corn. And by we, I really mean my wonderful husband. A few summers back, he happened to be watching Tyler Florence make grilled corn. He never wrote down the recipe, but quickly put his own twist on the method. I know grilled corn isn't a new technique, but for whatever reason this particular preparation always draws rave reviews. It doesn't require wrapping the corn in foil, or leaving a portion husk on. It's quick, simple and down right delicious. And with just a few weeks left in the summer, I suggest you try this recipe at your very next BBQ!

Summertime Grilled Corn
Inspired by Tyler Florence, created by my wonderful husband

4-6 ears of corn, shucked and cleaned
1 1/2 sticks of butter
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon, chili powder
1/8 teaspoon season salt
fresh cracked pepper

Prepare grill to medium heat.

Clean and shuck the corn. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl. Add all of the spices to the melted butter, mixing well to combine all of the spices. With a basting brush, lightly coat each ear of corn. Reserve the extra butter mixture. Place the corn directly on the grill, turning often to evenly grill the corn. Continue to baste the corn as it grills. Grill until all sides of the corn are slightly charred and golden, approximately 7-10 minutes. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
