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.

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.
