    Nice, might have to try this on Sat.

    How long do you keep it on the BBQ, I've never actually cooked corn on the cob before

    Treat it like a sausage, keep the grate fairly high from the coals and give it a quarter turn when the leaves on the underside start to char. You can always cheat when you think it's done and peal the leaves away from the end slightly to test. All in probably 15-20 mins.

    I've been thwarted, can't find a single supermarket with the leaves on, all in plastic packaging cut into tiny pieces...

    That's disappointing. Have you tried Waitrose as they tend to go a bit posher and leave them on? Or ideally a local grocers.

    Thanks Waitrose is the place but of course none left when I get there so at least I now know for next time.
    You'd think posh would be wrapped up on a plinth but now the raw vegetable is gourmet/farmhouse/rustic...
    Sadly no grocers in my area just fake farm shops

    Sorry for the self quoting and thread necro but now is the ideal time for this as we're right in corn season.

    Also made a soup out of some leftover BBQ chicken, the smoky taste it adds is wonderful.

    A bit late to add this, but we're very lucky. A few doors down in the village ftom a superb butcher is the "veg man".

    Interesting guy. A few years ago, he had £200, no job and spotted a small shop the owners were having trouble renting. He bought a very second-hand till, built a few display stands from old bits of spare wood and opened up in that little shop. Quite literally, £200 and a lot of love for his product. So, anyway, he goes around to local farmers pretty much daily, gets a little of this and a little of that, whatever he can but only if it's fresh, local and really good quality.

    His first day he sold out and now, several years later, he's usually got a queue. You never quite know what he'll have, but you do know if he's got it, it'll be good.

    Unemployed = unemployed - 1.

    Great guy. Always got a few moments for a chat, and nobody minds. They might join in and you have a sort-of impromptu village meeting with people you've never seen before, but nobody minds.

    It kinda reminds me of the thousands of tiny, local shops in my youth, before giant supermarkets destroyed them. We always pick him, over supermarkets. His stuff is the next best thing to digging it out of your oen garden or allotment .... wuthout the digging bit.

    In fact, quite a few of his "suppliers" are allotment owners.
