Sweet 'n' Spicy Roasted Corn

(originally made 7/2011)

Corn is just rolling into the farms around here, and I grab 6 ears whenever I see it.    I love doing the ears on the grill, and I shuck them and wrap them in foil.     The butter mixture is exactly as the title states- sweet and spicy!   A little too spicy for Tim, but Jake & I absolutely loved it.     Super easy and delicious!

Sweet 'n' Spicy Roasted Corn

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  6         large ears  sweet corn in husks (I wrapped mine in foil)
  2        tablespoons  butter
  4                     garlic cloves -- minced (used jarred)
  1           teaspoon  brown sugar
     1/4      teaspoon  crushed red pepper flakes
     1/4      teaspoon  chili powder

Carefully peel back husks to within 1 in. of bottom; remove silk. Rewrap corn in husks and secure with kitchen string. Soak corn in cold water for 1 hour. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill. Grill corn, covered, over medium heat for 25-30 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally. Remove string before serving. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Add garlic, brown sugar, red pepper flakes and chili powder. Brush over grilled corn.
