BBQ Grilled Corn


  • 4 ears corn on the cob

  • 2 limes, juiced

  • A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • Salt

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tablespoon grill seasoning (a palmful)

  • 1/2 cup ketchup or tomato sauce

  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce

  • 2 scallions, finely chopped


Pre-heat the grill over medium-high heat.

Husk the corn and douse it with lime juice, drizzle with EVOO and season with salt. Grill the corn to char it all over, 10-12 minutes.

Combine the vinegar and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium-low heat, then stir in the Worcestershire, grill seasoning, ketchup or tomato sauce and hot sauce. Simmer for a couple of minutes.

Baste the corn liberally with the sauce and cook for 1 minute longer. Remove the corn from the grill; cover with chopped scallions and serve.
