    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 the 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 described in the recipe.

    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

    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
