It’s officially corn on the cob season. I love it boiled (though the best way to make boiled corn is to actually not boil it at all), but there’s nothing like corn straight off the grill. My problem? I live in a tiny Boston apartment with no outdoor space and, in turn, no grill.
So you’ll understand how excited I was when I discovered I can make great grilled corn without one—and it doesn’t involve a hard-to-clean grill pan.
As I was looking at fresh corn recipes, daydreaming about one day owning our winning gas grill, I stumbled upon a Cook’s Country recipe for Mexican Street Corn. I was surprised when the instructions informed me that all I needed to “grill” my corn was my broiler.
