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.
Tender corn with smoke like flavoring in each bite…this corn is a new summer favorite!
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 called Chupacabra. However, if you want a Cajun flair to this, go for it! Any favorite seasoning you have will work! I tend to always use Chupacabra in just about everything because I have yet to use it and NOT love it!
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! In fact, my kids new favorite thing to use for their corn is the spray butter. Who knew that by making something come out in a spray, kids would fall even more in love with it, haha!
