Grilled Corn with Mint and Hot Chili Pepper Butter

If I ever open a BBQ joint, this is definitely going to be on the menu as a side.

  • Grilled corn on the cob (grill it with the husks on until they turn black)
  • Butter
  • Mint (spearmint works well) cut up finely
  • Tiny red hot chili peppers diced finely
  • Salt and pepper

Heat the butter gently in a microwave or stove top, add the mint and chili peppers to taste and stir. Put the butter on the corn and you are ready to go. Delicious!

Getting Ready

One week until the big party. Things are in full swing here. We’ve been cleaning like a tornado. I cleaned the grill last weekend which took 3.5 hours. This weekend we did a lot of stuff in the house and Erin did a lot in the garage. We also did some planting around the house and I dealt with a few odd jobs outside as well. I hope the landscapers can come this week and put in the garden. The rain is delaying their ability to catch up on their schedule. We still have a few weeks before the patio is going in.

This year we’re doing 2 grills for Memorial Day; one propane and one wood charcoal. Its going to be a grilling extravaganza!
