You'll Need

4 ears of corn, shucked
1 Tbsp grapeseed oil
3 Tbsp butter
2 tsp Ancho chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder
1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
Hot sauce
Salt & pepper

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Pull the husks back from the corn, leaving them intact at the base of the Cobb. Remove corn silks. Brush shucked corn with grapeseed oil and season with salt.
  2. Grill, rotating corn occasionally until corn is slightly charred on all sides, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. In a small pan, heat the butter over medium-high heat. Add the Ancho chili powder, garlic powder, and chipotle chili powder and cook until toasted and fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the pure maple syrup and a couple of dashes of hot sauce. Taste and add more if you prefer it hotter.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the corn to a serving platter and brush all over with the Chili Maple butter. Serve with hot sauce on the side.
