Foil Grilled Corn on the Cob is a fast, easy cleanup summer side dish recipe! This sweet and juicy grilled corn is perfectly seasoned and delightfully tender!


  • 4 ears of corn
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • salt & pepper
  • garlic powder


  1. Lay out an approximately 18" pieces of foil for each cob of corn you plan on grilling. I stack them and work on the top, one at a time.
  2. Shuck the corn and remove all the silk.
  3. Lay the corn on the foil and rub with a stick of butter to coat, about 1 tablespoon of butter per ear of corn. I usually butter the entire cob then season one side at a time.
  4. Season by sprinkling liberally with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  5. Wrap the corn in foil by loosely rolling it in the foil, then tightly sealing the ends to allow it to steam inside the foil packet.
  6. Grill over high heat for ten minutes, turning once.


  • if cooking meat on the grill, grill corn on the top rack and extend the cooking time to 15 minutes.
