Grilled corn is a staple at BBQ potlucks and summer cookouts. This roasted corn recipe makes a delicious side to go with any grilled foods!
Welcome to TSRI’s Summer Grilling Celebration! We hope you had a great long weekend. We had a fantastic barbeque with our favorite Southwestern flavors and some of our favorite people.
Grilled corn is a staple at any of our grilling get-togethers. Served along side Lil Texas Barbeque Sliders, this Spicy Grilled Corn is the perfect compliment.
Spiced Grilled Corn
The deep caramelized corn flavor is unsurpassed! My dear friend Eric made this at a barbeque a few years ago, and every time we would have a barbeque, I would ask him to make the roasted corn recipe again.
Well, sadly Eric moved away. So, I had to put on my big girl pants and learn how to use the gas grill. This Cajun corn really takes too long to make on a tabletop grill, and I don’t have the patience.
Roasted Corn Recipe Tips
Play with the heat level and the spices until it suites you. I am sure when I make this for my parents in a few weeks we will be using new spices (I have found a lot of Italians don’t like anything hotter than oregano). I will let you know what I come up with. Enjoy!
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

Spiced Grilled Corn
- 6 ears corn, shucked and cleaned
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- Place corn in a large pot, add sugar and fill with water. Allow to soak for at least 1 hour, up to 4 hours.
- Preheat grill to high 15 minutes before you are ready to use it. In a small bowl, melt butter (microwave for 15-30 seconds). Add salt and cayenne pepper. Set aside.
- Remove corn from water and place on a tray. Using a basting brush paint butter mixture on corn.
- Place corn on grill, arrange so they are not touching.
- Allow to grill for 3-5 minutes and then check for grill marks. Once corn is golden brown turn and place uncooked rows of kernels on grill. Using a grill basting brush, carefully apply a light coating of butter to the top of the corn. (BE CAREFUL: Applying too much butter can cause flair ups!!!) Repeat this until the corn is completely grilled.
- Remove from grill and serve.
