Smokin’ Spiced Corn

My dad, the family gardener, grew corn in abundance, so it graced our table A LOT. This is one of the ways my grandmother spiced it up on the grill. —Shirley Hodge, Bangor, Pennsylvania

    Delicious and very different from your typical corn on the cob, but next time I'll decrease the garlic to 1 clove.

    We liked this! It is sweet, and spicy too. I was afraid the sugars in the basting sauce would become blackened on the grill but it didn't, until we finally turned the heat way up at the very end to give it a nice char. This was very good!
