Use any fresh herb combination in the butter mixture for this smoky grilled corn. By leaving on the husks and wrapped in foil this lets the corn cook in its own juices and makes it taste extra fresh.

You can grill the corn in foil or put husked corn directly on the grill. Herbs, butter and salt are all you need to dress it.
