Roasted Corn on the Grill
To roast corn, first you need a seasoning. I used my homemade compound butter of honey, Sriracha and unsalted butter as the seasoning.
Just brush the butter on the corn and roast. The taste is buttery, sweet, with the slight heat from the Sriracha.
A bite into the corn kernels immediately transports me to corn heaven. This is the best corn recipe ever!
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Grill Corn in Foil?
Yes, you can wrap corn on the cob with aluminum foil. Place the foil-wrapped corn on the grill to cook it.
How to Grill Corn with Husk?
Keep the husk and beard (silk) on each corn but before grilling, gently pull down the husk on each cob, keep the husk attached at the bottom.
Remove the silk (beard) from the cob as much as you can, some of them will still cling to the cob. Season the corn with seasonings and grill away from direct heat.
Close the cover and barbecue for about 10 minutes, turning every 3 minutes or so until the corn kernels are cooked through.
Remove the corn from the heat, peel off the husk completely and eat on the cob.

I love grilled corn on cob (i mean it’s the best thing in the world) and I love Sriracha butter. This is double treat definitely. Summer afternoon with grilled corn in the patio would be blissful
Where can I buy Sriracha? This butter looks so good. Thanks
You can buy at Asian stores or online.
Simple and tasty!
This looks awesome!! Just wondering what the exact amounts were for the various ingredients. Not sure how much butter that is – I am guessing about 250g? I am guessing honey and garlic about 2tbsp and 1 tbsp of sriracha with a pinch of salt? Thanks.
The link of the honey Sriracha butter is in the recipe, it’s linked and there is a video.
I’m absolutely drooling over this corn. When I was a kid, I ate a whole stick of butter. Do that now and I’d never be able to show my face in my swim trunks!
LOL, too funny Tom. Yes this honey sriracha butter grilled corn recipe is awesome!!!
