Here's a technique for grilling corn that I found in The Joy of Cooking. It is super easy and yields perfectly roasted corn. The one sticking point is that you have to plan ahead because the corn has to soak in water for two hours before grilling. You cook the corn in the husks, and shucking it hot off the grill makes it easier to remove the silks. Enjoy!

1. Soak corn in water to cover for two hours. Grill over high heat for 10 to 15 minutes, turning to cook all sides. Remove from grill, and pull back the husks. Spread butter over the corn kernels, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
