Grilled Corn on the Cob with Husks

Grilled corn on the cob is a summertime staple. What would cookouts be without it?

Summer nights are meant for campfires and quick food! Easy dishes like chicken, seasonal vegetables, s’mores, and this grilled corn on the cob with husks take the stress out of planning get-togethers. Just toss them on the grill and go! Thanks to the addition of our Eastern Shore Honey, this grilled corn on the cob is sweet and flavorful, just like it’s supposed to be.

Honey grilled corn

Growing up, my family always made summer trips to the mountains of northern Pennsylvania. Here, we’d have huge cookouts, with all sorts of grilled and fried chicken, fish, and veggies. Something that always showed up was a few ears of grilled corn, husks charred black by the heat of the grill. I wasn’t a fan of it when I was small; the husk made it hard to eat. It seemed to take too long to cool down for my little hands to hold, but I’ve grown to appreciate it. Topped with a rich honey butter blend, this corn is sweet and smoky, and compliments our Honey Grilled Chicken and fresh fruit.

Grill in a backyard during the summer

If you don’t have a grill, you can make this corn in your backyard campfire! Grilled corn on the cob with husks is super easy on the fire. Allow your fire to burn down to ashy embers and simply lay the ears on top. Or, start a small fire before your cookout and do the same. Turn with a fire prod every few minutes, as the husk charrs. You’ll soon have coal roasted ears of corn!

For Even Better Grilled Corn on the Cob

We always encourage you to play with our recipes and make them your own. This recipe is super simple and leaves lots of wiggle room for experimenting, so have some fun! We recommend:

  • Swap out the mixed herbs for cilantro, dill, or chives
  • Add some heat with chili powder
  • Omit the herbs and use a dash of cinnamon for something sweeter

Pin Recipe


  • 12 large ears of corn in their husks
  • 1 stick butter room temperature
  • 1 tbsp. Waxing Kara Honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. minced fresh herbs like parsley, rosemary, and marjoram
  • cracked sea salt to taste


  • Get your grill to a medium-high heat. Soak the corn in cool water for about 10 minutes. This helps to keep the ears from charring too much while on the heat of the grill.
  • While the corn is soaking, whip together the honey, butter, and herbs until well combined.
  • Take the corn from the water, pull back the husks, and remove the silk. Brush each cob with a fair amount of the honey-butter blend, and add a dash of cracked sea salt. Fold the husks back over and tie with kitchen twine (if the ears are being unruly).
  • Add the corn to the grill, making sure to turn often. After about 15 minutes (when the husks are charred and the kernels are soft), remove from heat. Pull back the husks and enjoy!
