Here’s a tasty summer accompaniment to brisket or just about anything grilled.
This is a new ‘cue interpretation of traditional Mexican roasted corn. It requires an oven-proof roasting bag for warming and steaming the corn. Foil can be used, but butter might leak and cause a flare-up.
Serves 6 – 8
4 ears fresh corn, husk removed*
Olive oil spray
1 stick salted butter, melted & cooled
½ tsp. finely grated lime peel
Pinch of cayenne pepper or to taste
Break each cob into 2 to 3 pieces. Spray pieces evenly with olive oil spray.
Place corn away from direct heat and smoke until tender, about 20 minutes, turning several times.
Blend butter, lime peel and cayenne pepper in a roasting bag. When corn comes off the grill, place in roasting bag and turn to coat evenly. Keep warm.
