  • Place the corn on the grill directly over the coals and rotate until all sides are well charred, about 8 minutes total.

  • Remove the corn from the grill when the kernels have begun to blacken in spots.

  • Serve each cob with a lime half to rub over the corn. If desired, sprinkle extra rub onto the corn.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro, and serve hot. Enjoy.
