    The traditional Mexican street vendor version of this is to cook or even overcook the corn in water, then rub it with lime and sprinkle a bit of coarse salt over the whole. No fat at all. The lime butter approach sounds intriguing, and I love the sweetness grilling gives the corn. Nice recipe!!! - 11/28/08

    Here's a technique alteration.
    Instead of drawing butter, mix spreadable corn or canola oil with seasonings. Take a good size dollop of th mixture and peel back the husk (don't remove it). Put the oil mix on the corn and rewrap the corn in it's husk.
    Grill as discribed in the recipe. - 6/8/09

    Great recipe! Note for some: If you put butter/oil on the corn before cooking it tends to result in singed/browned kernals, whether broiling/bbq, husked/unhusked, aluminum foil or not. However, the lime, peppers, etc. can be put on it before cooking w/out the singe. - 2/20/10

    We like our corn grilled in the husk. Instead of butter I like a mix of mustard, cumin, EEOV - 8/16/09

    I have never liked corn. I decided to make it for some company for dinner. I tried a bite and immediately fell in love. This is an awesome recipe. Even if you don't like corn give this a try. I made extra lime sauce and coated the corn while it was still on the grill too. AWESOME! Will make again! - 3/9/10

    The cayenne (ground red pepper) adds an awesome spicy kick that pairs wonderfully with the sweetness of grilled corn. Great side dish for those weekend cookouts! - 6/1/08

    I made this recipe for a BBQ and everybody raved about it!
    We cleaned the silk off the corn, then tied the shucks around them and soaked in water for a while before putting it on the grill. - 9/17/09

    I made this yesterday and it was even better than anticipated. My husband and I loved it! Even the kids went back for seconds. It was so easy. This will become one of our staples when grilling. You need to give it a try! - 6/28/09

    I am not buying the nutrition facts here. The nutrition tracker on this site says a (half) cob is 90 calories - how could a whole one, with butter on it yet - be only 97??
    After eating 2 ears recently and being shocked by the 300 calorie price, I decided corn is for fattening livestock...not for me - 5/25/10

    I loved it but it was a bit spicy- next time I fix it I'll probably half the amount of red pepper. Also, cheated and used frozen corn- worked perfectly! - 4/28/10

    yum...but it's great with just some lime juice and a little cumin mixed together and spritzed over the corn.
    saves a few calories! - 6/1/09

    I tweeked this one a bit, but it was amazing! I seasoned the corn, added some spicy chili powder and then wrapped each ear in foil before putting them on the grill. The foil keeps the flavor sealed in the packet and keeps the corn moist. - 4/16/10

    I used lemon instead of lime because I don't like limes. It was very good and different. I will make it again. I also cooked the corn only on the grill and it took an hour on med heat. - 6/18/09
