Traeger Corn on the Cob Recipe

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 Traeger Corn on the Cob recipe will do the trick for all of us! This is the 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. When you move away, it is the type of sweet corn that you should schedule your vacations around when it is in season. Many states have great sweet corn, but Minnesota’s sweet corn is the best. Let’s argue about it sometime over a big plate of buttery corn on the cob, mmmmkay?

Where did sweet corn come from?

Sweet corn was made when two wild grass types crossed in New Mexico and South America. It is widely grown worldwide 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 worldwide to feed cattle and other livestock. They, however, do not get the sweet variety.

What should you serve with sweet corn?

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.

Don’t forget about my Grilled Buffalo Chicken, either. I like to make this with my sweet when I need a little spice.

In the mood for some beef? My Traeger Ribeye is super popular, and one of my favorite steaks.

A great salad and some grilled vegetables, and you are in for a fabulous summer meal.

We'll have to agree to disagree on the "better" part of this, but I'm glad you have a good method for yourself! Happy grilling!

Where is the recipe for the traeger veggie rub?


Monday 25th of October 2021

@Nicole Johnson, have you tried rubbing the corn in butter instead of a vegetable based oil? I sub melted butter (the REAL stuff) in any recipe that calls for vegetable oil, especially baking. Not sure if it will work differently being grilled

There isn't a recipe for that. It is a thing that Traeger sells. Here's a link!

If you'd rather use something else, I usually go looking for a herb-centric bbq rub.
