Campfire Corn on the Cob


4 cobs of corn, husked
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
salt and pepper
aluminum foil
8 ice cubes


Place one cob of corn on aluminum foil. Add 1 Tbsp butter, salt and pepper. Top with 2 ice cubes. Fold foil and secure tightly. Place the tin foil packages at the edge of the fire. Do not place them directly in the flame. The goal is not to burn them to a crisp, but to roast them slowly with the heat from the fire. Cook on hot coals for about 15 minutes. Turn and rotate often.

NOTE: If you want to, you can use your favourite flavoured butters instead of plain butter or use a seasoned salt.

What does the ice do?

It steams it so the corn will cook as if you cooked in a boiling pot of water at home.

you don't need ice, it turns out just as good without it.

Soak them in a bucket of water first with their husks on for 30 minutes. Then rosary them. No ice needed

You don't need any of this. Just place the corn IN THE HUSK on the grate. Turn 1/4 every 10 minutes. Steamed to perfection the natural way!
