Do you grill your corn in or out of the husks?

I have never grilled corn, but plan to tonight. I have one recipe that says to peel back the husks, rub off the silk and then soak the ears in cold water for 20 minutes. Once soaked, pull the husks back up and grill for 20 minutes. I have another that says to brush the grill with oil and grill the peeled ears for 10 minutes.

Advice, please!!!

We soak with husks on for about an hour or so, then grill with the husks on. Never tried it any other way, so I can't compare, but I think it is quite yummy this way.

I've done the peel back the husks method (and put margarine and/or spices in there), but also huskless and wrapped in tin foil.

Peel the husk back but leave attached, remove corn silk, replace husk, soak in cold water 20-30 minutes, drain, place on grill near heat for about 20-30 minutes, turning every 5-10 minutes for even cooking. Peel off husks and brush with olive oil and spices - or just eat plain, I love it either way.

You can leave the corn silk on, but it's harder to remove when the corn is hot.

P.S. be careful of the husk catching fire. Had one go up in flames last weekend.

We do it in husk.

We had 6 ears, so we did three of each way I mentioned in post #1. They were both good. The peeled corn straight on the grill got some nice color, but was a bit dry. The pre-soaked, pre-de-silked corn was wonderfully moist, but we did have to watch it carefully so the husk didn't catch fire!
I think I'll try earth balance and some herbs under the husk next time.
