This amazing and flavorful twist on Grilled Corn Of the Cob will make your taste buds so happy! You will love the sweet heat seasoning on this classic dish!
The first thing you need to do for this recipe is grab some fresh corn. I’m talking ears of corn that are so beautiful they are just begging to be grilled. Truth be told grilling corn is quite easy, but when you add these amazing spices and toppings the smoky flavor gets taken to the next level!
A lot of people don’t like to eat corn cob straight up so you can even take the corn kernels off the corn cobs and still enjoy this delicious treat. This Bang Bang Grilled Corn On The Cob recipe is going to be your new favorite way to grill when it comes to corn recipes.
When it comes to choosing corn husks make sure you choose the freshest corn available. When you are in the grocery store make sure the tassels (those things sticking up out of the top) are brown and sticky to the touch on the first layer of husks. It’s the best way to get the best grilled corn.
What do I need to make this Bang Bang Grilled Corn on the cob?
6 ears fresh corn, shucked and cleaned
½ cup sweet chili sauce
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 limes, juiced
Salt & pepper
After you leave the grocery store with the best husks of corn be sure to remove the layers of husk–which is a fun task to let the kids help with!
Peeling the husks of the corn was always one of my favorite things to do before it went on the grill and got those beautiful grill marks. Some recipes require that you put the corn on the grill until you get charred husks over direct heat in aluminum foil, this is not going to be the method we use today.
We had a backyard bbq what it seems like every single week when I was growing up. My mom would get her favorite seasonings together and the corn on the upper rack of the bbq over medium heat until there was a subtle smokiness that happened. The tender kernels of the cob made it the best corn I have ever eaten!
When it comes to grilling I prefer a gas grill because I like the control factor of the heat. Grilling corn on an outdoor grill on medium-high heat is just a fun thing to do anytime to be honest.
