But in my house, we will crank it up more often now, from 1 or 2 times a week to 5 - 6 times a week. When I get crankin', NOTHIN' is safe from going on the grill, so my daughter keeps a close eye on her dog. Hmmmmm, I've wokked my dog, so... never mind, too much hair to shave first. Anyway, here is a recipe for corn-on-the-cob that y'all might like :

Mix all ingredients in a non-reactive bowl and allow to sit at room temp.

for about ½ hr. (give it some privacy huh. The flavors have just married and it's their honeymoon ;-). Shuck the corn (or damn it, or curse it however), slather with the butter and grill immediately about 5 min. per side (corn, being round, I figure has 4 sides/quarters). Use the leftover butter at the table.
