This Smoked Corn on the Cob is incredibly flavorful, simple to make, and is the perfect summertime side dish!
A few nights ago, my hubby make Smoked Chicken Wings for dinner. Since the smoker was already heated, we decided to cook our corn on it as well.
Simply spreading some olive oil, seasonings, and putting back in the corn husk….this corn was ready to smoke!
Now, if you only have a grill, that works too, you just won’t get the smoky flavor! Nonetheless, it will be quite tasty though!
We used our favorite seasoning line called Chupacabra. However, if you want a Cajun flair to this, go for it! Any favorite seasoning you have will work!
I’m not big on adding butter to corn after cooked, however, my kids love it like that! Spread some butter on, maybe some cheese, salt, or pepper and enjoy!
Nothing screams summer like corn on the cob, right?! Plus, you can keep the heat out of the kitchen by firing up the smoker and making the entire meal outside. Not only is cleanup a breeze, but the house stays cool and the meal will be a hit!
