  • 5-6 ears of corn with husks attached
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the barbecue on medium heat.
  2. To make the herb butter, mix the softened butter with chopped parsley, oregano, thyme, sage and salt. Set aside.
  3. Pull the husks of corn down to the base, keeping them still attached to the corn. Careful not to pull them off. Pull off the corn silk until the corn is clean, as this will burn on the barbecue, then close back the husks back to their original place. Optional* Tie the husks together with a string or wire, to keep the husks from opening, exposing the corn and burning.
  4. Soak the corn in water, completely submerged for at least 10 minutes.
  5. Shake off the excess water off the corn and place on the barbecue grill. Bbq for about 15 minutes, or until the corn easy bursts when pierced. Turn the corn over every 5 minutes.
  6. Open the corn, leaving the corn husk still attached at the base of the corn and spread with the herb butter.
