Grilled Corn in Foil
Grilled corn on the cob in foil makes the perfect addition to your summertime barbeque. Corn grilled in foil is easy, juicy and irresistible with our lemon dill butter!
For the Grilled Corn:
- 6 ears of corn
For the Lemon Dill Butter:
- 4 Tbsp (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened at room temp
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Pinch of pepper or to taste
- 1 Tbsp fresh dill finely chopped
- 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
How to Make Lemon Dill Butter:
Cream 4 Tbsp butter with a fork in a medium bowl.
Stir in 1/4 tsp salt, pinch of pepper and 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice and mix until smooth. The lemon juice will seem like it isn't blending, but keep mixing for a couple minutes and it will happen.
Stir in fresh chopped dill until well incorporated. Keep the prepared butter at room temp until ready to serve corn.
How to Grill Corn:
Preheat Grill to Med/High. Shuck corn. Leave the corn whole or break corn into halves or thirds if serving a large crowd. Wrap each ear of corn with a generous sheet of heavy duty foil making sure all sides are covered. If using regular kitchen-standard foil, double wrap the corn so it doesn't scorch.
Grill foil-wrapped corn with the lid closed over medium/high heat, rotating the corn every 2 -3 minutes to keep from scorching. Grill for 15-20 minutes. Ours was done at 18 minutes. Once corn is finished grilling, remove foil and brush generously with lemon dill butter while warm.
Do not add butter or oil to the cob inside the foil. It is not necessary and can cause flare-ups on the grill.
