bbq corn with lemon & herbs




what you need

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tender herbs (such as cilantro, chives, and/or flat-leaf parsley)

Smokey Joes lemon & herb rub

Pinch cayenne pepper

1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

8 ears corn, shucked

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

sour cream optional

limes optional



what to do

Prepare grill for medium-high heat.

Mix butter, herbs, salt, pepper, and a pinch of cayenne pepper in a small bowl.

Set herb butter aside.

Brush corn with oil and sprinkle well with Smokey Joe's Lemon & herb rubs, grill, turning often, until it is tender and charred in spots, 5-8 minutes.

Transfer corn to a large platter or bowl and spread with reserved herb butter, dividing evenly.


For something a little extra - drizzle with sour cream and freshly squeezed limes


Note: The herb butter can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Bring to room temperature before spreading over grilled ears of corn.
