Grilled Corn. Grilled Hot Dogs: Korean, German Or Polynesian Style.

Yes. I am a little Type A.

(Okay. Yes. I am a Major Type A with a minor in OCD)

I need to unload a few OCD disks from my brain.

Anyone, anyone?


So, I got this gas grill a few weeks ago. Never had one before.

I had an inkling that it might be a pain to clean. But, the reality was a shocker.

This is where being Type A comes in. I say to my Type B best friend, “I had no idea it was going to be such a pain to keep the gas grill clean”. She replied “Really, I don’t find it that bad at all.”

What? Am I alone in a sea of cleansers and wire brushes?

I don’t know. I’m not going to think about it. I feel better just unloading a little on you all. Thanks!

Now, it is totally worth it to spend all of that time cleaning the grill (see…we’re back there) to make a fantastic grilled meal like this one.

Grilled corn. Yum. Easy.

Grilled Hot Dogs. Delicious. Ditto the easy.

Grilled Hot Dogs with an assortment of toppings. Fun. Fun. Fun.

Grilled Corn


6 ears corn, with husks
Unsalted butter
Sea salt and pepper


1. Prepare grill.

2. Remove the outermost layer of the husks. Pull back the remaining husks just enough so that you can remove the silk. Loosely recover the corn with the husks, leaving some of the kernels exposed, which will allow them to brown slightly.

3. Grill for 5 minutes, turning frequently, until tender and heated through.

4. Serve with butter, salt and pepper.

Now you know I am Type A with a touch of OCD. I’m a little crazy, but in the nicest way possible.

  1. SO, after you grill the corn, spread a little mayo on it, sprinkle with chipotle powder (A LITTLE), and then roll in grated parm. It’ll kick it up a notch or two, but it really is perfect the way you present it, too.
