For those who love corn on the cob and are tired of the typical boiled corn. If the BBQ is hot doing the steaks it's a shame to waste all that extra heat.
Clean the corn ears. Melt the butter. Using a basting brush, slather each ear liberally with butter. After a moment, the butter should harden somewhat into a tacky coating. Sprinkle lightly with salt and heavily with fresh-ground peppercorns (I use green, white, and black). Add one ice cube and tightly roll up each ear in a piece of aluminum foil such that two layers of foil cover the ears surface. Twist or fold over the foil at the ends.
Cook them on the grill for 8-10 minutes, then turn them over and cook another 8-10 minutes.
On a charcoal grill, I lay them directly on the prepared coals (red inside, completely covered with grey ash). On a propane gas grill, I turn it to medium-hot heat and lay the ears on a low rack. The perfect ear will be well-roasted, with the tops of kernels brown or just blackening. Be careful opening the foil -- that butter is hot! I typically serve them with fresh bratwurst boiled in beer before being grilled. WKB~~at;MAGNUM.CB.ATT.COM (KEITH BRUMMETT) REC.FOOD.RECIPES From rec.food.cooking archives.

The original recipe did not call for the ice cube but I saw it in another recipe and thought it was a good idea. It keeps the corn moist and does not let it dry out like it often does on the BBQ. My wife doesn't like pepper on her corn so I only put it on half the ears. Turned out great
