BBQ Corn on the Cob Recipe


  • – 50g butter 
  • – Unsalted or salted works great and we just so happen to have both on our round! Check out our dairy deliveries and take your pick!
  • – Corn on the cob (x1 per person)
  • – Or two per person, we don’t judge!
  • – Salt and pepper 
  • – x2 garlic cloves (crushed) 
  • – Paprika 


  1. 1. In a small frying pan, melt some butter over medium heat. Add in the crushed garlic and a sprinkle of paprika for an extra kick.
  1. 2. With a basting brush, apply your tasty garlicky butter to the corn on the cob, being sure to let it seep into every nook, cranny and cob.
  1. 3. Place the buttered corn in the centre of a sheet of aluminium foil, then gently wrap it up, making sure to seal the edges tightly. You wouldn’t want all the heat and buttery goodness to escape!
  1. 4. With your grill preheated to medium heat, carefully place each corn packet on the grill. Cook for approximately 30- 40 minutes. 
  1. 5. Carefully take your foil-wrapped corn off the grill. Gently unwrap each golden cob and be sure to watch out for the steam! To add a final touch of flavour, sprinkle your cobs with salt and pepper.
  1. 6. And now for the main event: Plate up your cobs and tuck in!

Additional Tips and tricks

  • – If your guests are hungry and you’re in a rush, you can always boil your corn on the cob for ten minutes prior to whacking it on the grill to speed up the cooking process. 
  • – If you want a slightly more charred corn on the cob, we recommend removing the foil and placing them directly on the grill for the last few minutes.
