    Lessons

    First of all, not trying to win. Just to get a rise out of @Bear. Because what are friends for?

    So I took Bear out for a sushi lunch and then invited him over to have dinner with me and the family since I was firing up the grill tonight. Because lesson 1, sharing is caring.

    But Bear chose to go home and eat leftovers. Because lesson 2, waste not want not.

    I'll add a picture of my plated dinner when I slap it together.

    Wouldn't know. I've known @Bear for a long time. Never heard him mention, nor saw him eat satay.

    Steak and garlic sesame chicken. Both were grilled, then smoked. Same as the corn.

    Just a little smokiness for flavor with the corn. I just like kiawe (our Hawaiian mesquite).

    Dumb question/clarification. What is smoked corn?The way we do corn is following. We will take corn and soak it for a better part of the day then get a good bed of coals in the fire pit and roast the corn in the husks.

    @Motomom, I didn't soak the corn. Just threw them on the grill over the coals with the husk on. When they were about done, I took them off the coals, moved them to the cool side of the grill and covered it to let the smoldering kiawe build up smoke to add a little more smokiness to it.

    I do the same with the steak. Sear over the coals for about a minute each side. Then take it off heat to the cooler side. Let it smoke for about two minutes and call her done. Medium rare. Lots of juice.

    So not full on smoking.

    I've never soaked corn, always peeled, de-silked it, and put it right on the grill. You get light brown kernels where it contacts the grid, keep rolling it over or it'll burn. Takes about the same amount of time the steak does. You poke the kernels with a fork at the start to test the "feel" then again at the end. When tine penetration is palpably less, it's done. Somehow, that way brings out the sweetness that doesn't happen with boiled ears.

    Corn is good grilled but when I can get me a just-picked ear of corn I'll shuck it and eat it raw.
    Sometimes I'll eat several while I am standing next to the stalk. Mmmmm.

    The JC's soak it for at least 30 minutes, then grill it until brown on all sides, shuck it, leaving the husks attached, wrap with paper towel, destring, then dip in butter and hot water. Salt it after dipping. Very good, and I do it this way every time we find it on sale.

    Grill half ears of corn in a foil bag with taters sliced about half inch thick, with butter chunks and seasoning spaced throughout. Shake and flip regularly with tongs, to get that butter to spread around in there. Cook time - about 3 or 4 beers. (y)

    Now THAT'S a timing method!

    Corn steamed with lobsters, crabs, and clams sound pretty good too.

    Every veggie can be grilled.

    Red peppers- quarter them then put in bag with olive oil pull out lay skin side down on grill till just before brown and flip.

    Asparagus, squash, carrots, tomatoes every veggie is grill able as long as you put oil on it to keep it from drying out.

    Garlic make an aluminum foil boat drisel oil over peal garlic roast eat

    I do the same, although I take the silk out. I coat the ears with butter then sprinkle with salt, a bit of dried parsley and maybe pepper.(I like pepper on my corn) I coat the husks with the excess butter that is on my hands from coating the ears and give the ends of the shucks a twist. Has always worked good for me on the grill or campfire.

    I've always thought it must bring out,or do something to the sugars in the corn. No matter, it's the only way to cook Corn on the cob IMO!
