I like to remove part of the husk and then put the corn on the grill while my meats are cooking. Near the end I remove the rest of the husk and hair and put some butter and lime juice on the corn and then finish it back on the grill to char it a little. This is particularly good for early corn that isn't super sweet on it's own.

Jen, that sounds great. I've always wondered how easy it is to remove the husks and hairs while the corn hot. Suggestions?
