BBQ Street Corn

Recipe By Abbey Cochran

We added a BBQ twist to Mexican style street corn. We love the easy method too...simply bake or grill corn cobs in their husks so they cook without drying out. Then finish them on the grill for great that classic BBQ char flavor.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with your favorite BBQ protein and sides.

Recipe Notes

Cooking corn in the husk allows it to cook in its own moisture and makes it much easier to take the husk off.


6 ears corn, in their husks

½ cups mayonnaise

½ lemon, zested and juiced

1 Tbsp. choice of BBQ rub:

¾ cups grated Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp. fresh chopped chives

Preheat a grill for even, medium-high heat. Set corn (in their husks) onto the grill and cook for about 15 min. with the lid on. Alternatively, bake the corn in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 35 min. While corn cooks, mix mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice, and choice of seasoning in a small bowl until thoroughly combined. Remove corn from heat and let cool for about 10 min., or until it can be handled. Peel back the husks and grill the ears with the lid off for 5 to 10 min., or until corn is slightly charred. Liberally brush on mayonnaise mixture to coat. Finish by sprinkling all sides with a generous pinch of Parmesan cheese and chives.
