Corn on the cob is an easy and delicious addition to any BBQ this summer and this Grilled Corn with Herb Butter is a great way to use up leftover herbs and feed hungry guests at the same time. Mint, parsley, basil, use what ever you have and mix it with some butter and garlic and smother it on corn before wrapping it up and putting it on the BBQ grill.
When it comes to a BBQ, I have tendency to over cater. What I love about BBQs is having a little bit of everything, so that means making a lot of different dishes. That can take a lot of time and effort, and when everyone else is outside enjoying the sun you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen preparing your 10th side dish. This Grilled Corn with Herb Butter takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and is easy to make for a big group too.

If you are growing herbs this year, then chances are they are going to be taking over your garden before long. I don’t think you will ever be short of recipes that use a lot of herbs, but you can never have too many, right?
I have made this BBQ Sweetcorn recipe about 5 or 6 times now, and I use a different combination of herbs every time. To some people, more traditionalists, that might sound crazy as some things pair better together. But, we are all about reducing food waste and that’s what this recipe is all about.
We had our first BBQ of the year last week. Can I get a Woooo Hooooo?! The weather has been incredible the past few weeks, and we aren’t even in to summer yet. So, we made the most of that and got the barbecue started and created some new BBQ recipes for you all. Also, seeing as it is National Barbecue Week, now is the perfect time to get those grills fired up.
This was cooked on our new Char-Broil Gas2Coal barbecue – you know what they say, new house, new BBQ. This barbecue is epic – it provides you with all the taste of a charcoal barbecue, but with the convenience of gas cooking.
The Char-Broil Gas2Coal barbecue is BIG and takes some time to assemble (especially if doing it on your own). It made a bit more difficult as none of the parts were labelled, however, the instructions were clear so assembly was straight forward. Once it is all together, you have a fantastic barbecue, big enough to cook for a whole family or party.
The push button electronic ignition means the barbecue is up and running in seconds and the cast iron grill with three burners provides a large even cooking surface. While there is the initial cost of the barbecue, and the purchase of gas, once bought each use costs less than £2 per time.
The addition of a stainless steel side-burner gives you the opportunity to cook with a pan and a separate warming shelf keeps food warm away from the main cooking area. There is a lid mounted thermometer and a practical side shelf to rest plates, utensils or any other accessories.
Where the Char-Broil Gas2Coal barbecue comes into its own is that the combination grill easily converts from gas to charcoal in only a few steps, no tools required. Simply remove the cast iron grates, then take the charcoal tray from its storage location and insert it into the grill. Add charcoal into the tray and replace the grates.
Once the tray and charcoal are in place, light the three gas burners. With the burners lit and the lid closed, the charcoal will heat – no lighter fluid is required. After 10-15 minutes, lift the lid, switch off the burners and wait for the coals turn white-hot. And it’s done! You’re ready to start cooking. We love the charcoal taste you get from a barbecue, but hate the messing about with lighting the coals – that is no longer an issue. Of course, you can just cook on gas if you prefer.
Established Since 1948, Char-Broil is one of the leading American brands for gas Barbecues and America’s oldest Barbecue brand. The Gas2Coal hybrid grill is a brilliant barbecue and one that we will use for a very long time to come. Gone are the days of messing about with coals, trying to get them lit or juggling what to cook first on tiny cooking areas. This barbecue has it all – it’s quick to start, cooks well and evenly and cleans up easily.
Once you have cooked all your corn on the barbecue, serve it up on a platter and drizzle all the butter leftover in the foil on top of it so none of it is wasted. Sprinkle over any leftover herbs and then to make the dish that little bit better, crumble some soft goats cheese on top. You could even add a squeeze of lime for a nice fresh summer flavour.
How To Make Grilled Corn with Herb Butter
- 2 Sweetcorn ears, leaves removed and each ear cut in half
- 2 tbsp Butter
- A handful of fresh herbs (we used basil, parsley and mint - but you can use any)
- 2 Garlic cloves crushed
- A pinch of sea salt and black pepper
- 20 g Soft goats cheese, crumbled
In a bowl, mix together the butter, fresh herbs, garlic and salt and pepper.
Rub the butter mixture over the corn and then put each piece on a square of aluminium foil.
Wrap the foil up so it is sealed and put them on the BBQ for 30 minutes, turning half way.
Take them out of the foil and put them on a platter. Sprinkle then with more herbs and the goats cheese.
