It always reminds me of street fairs where you could buy corn on the cob, still in the husk, straight off the grill. You could smell it for blocks.

- Corn on the cob
- Butter flavored cooking spray
Preheat grill to med high heat
Remove corn husks and silk - don't stress out about getting each piece of the silk, it will burn off on the grill
Spray each piece of corn with the butter flavored cooking spray
Place corn directly on grill. Let sit for about 2-3 minutes and turn a quarter turn. Repeat until each side is cooked. Corn should brighten in color and be slightly charred. Leave longer if you prefer it more charred flavor. (careful not to overcook though, or the corn will become mushy)
Serve with butter, salt and any other desired toppings.
