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

Street Corn Recipe from Savory Spice



Cooking corn in the husk allows it to cook in its own moisture and makes it much easier to take the husk off. If desired, finish corn on the grill to get some char and color before brushing on the mayonnaise mixture.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set corn (in their husks) on a baking sheet and bake for about 35 min. In the meantime, mix BBQ rub of choice, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a small bowl until thoroughly combined. Remove corn from oven and let it cool. Peel back husks; remove husks if desired or leave on for a sort of “handle” for the corn. (For char and color, grill corn over high heat for about 5 to 10 min.) Liberally brush on the mayonnaise mixture to thoroughly coat the ears of corn. Finish the corn by sprinkling all sides with a generous amount of Parmesan cheese and chives.
