Quick post here, before I get ready to grill my first ears of corn ever. We're having some friends over for lunch today and we're grilling hot dogs and corn on the cob. Never grilled corn before, but I know it's been done before so there's hope. Found a helpful link with some info on it: http://whatscookingamerica.net/Vegetables/GrillingCorn.htm
My first summer job was almost doing detassling. I had applied/signed-up, whatever it is kids do before they get crammed onto a hot school bus and taken out into the middle of nowhere to strip the silk tops off the corn. Instead, my future step-mom told me about a job painting the interior of apartments and some new construction. I went with that instead and never was a detassler. Oh well. Sounded like a pretty tough job. Though the pay may have been better than painting.
