Traeger Corn on the Cob
One of my favorite things about summer is when I can get fresh corn on the cob. I love it when I can get that extra special batch. You know, the kind that keeps you going until the next summer. The kind that you remember when the rain is coming down and you are longing for the smells and all the feels of sunshine.
My recipe for Traeger Corn on the Cob is going to do the trick for all of us! This is that kind of simple recipe that is so flavorful and extra special, but it is so easy!
Growing up in Minnesota, we had the best corn on the cob because of the growing conditions. It is the type of sweet corn that when you move away, you should schedule your vacations around when it is in season. I know that there are many states in the country that have great sweet corn but Minnesota sweet corn is the best. Let’s argue about it sometime over a big plate of buttery corn on the cob, mmmmkay?
THE ORIGINS OF SWEET CORN
Sweet corn was made when two wild grasses crossed in New Mexico and South America. It is widely grown all over the world and has been used and grown in many different cultures including Native Americans, Mexicans, South Americans, Aztecs, Mayans, and many more. Corn is used in many different things and is used worldwide to feed cattle and other livestock. They, however, do not get the sweet variety.
WHAT’S FOR DINNER?
One of the great things about sweet corn is how versatile it is. It goes with just about everything. I love to serve it with anything that comes off the grill. One of my favorites is my Honey Balsamic Traeger Grilled Chicken Legs. Oh, and I can’t forget about my Grilled Buffalo Chicken. I like to make this when I need a little spice with my sweet. A great salad and some grilled vegetables, and you are in for a fabulous summer meal.
