Now, corn on the cob and summer is right up there with Fruit Pudding and Banana Split Kabobs in my family.  It’s just one of those summertime foods that has be to made a time or two… or twenty.

How to cook corn on the cob in the cooler has got to be one of those ‘who’d of thunk’ sort of creations.  I mean, whoever first came up with cooking corn on the cob in a cooler is a genius.  GENIUS.  Seriously.  Because, have you ever had a big cookout and spent way too much time standing over a hot stove with multiple pans boiling with corn and water?  It’s really not a lot of fun.

And then there is the cook time for boiling ears of corn.  That has always tricked me.  I normally end up with slightly over-done corn on the cob… which is still good because hey, it’s corn on the cob!

However, my method of cooking corn on the cob as beautiful as this has now been transformed.

I mean, wow- right?  It’s just plain gorgeous.  Not only that, but it tastes even better than it looks.  If that’s even possible.

You can make corn on the cob like this too, in just a few simple steps:

  1. Remove husks and silk from corn.
  2. Boil a couple kettles of water.  I did this one kettle at a time and it worked perfectly.
  3. Wash out an ice chest.
  4. Spread out corn on the cob on the bottom of ice chest.
  5. Cover corn with boiling water and close ice chest.  Set timer for 30 minutes and you’re good to go.  Corn comes out perfectly cooked!
  6. Serve with butter and try to stop at just one ear of corn.  I know I couldn’t!

    easy way to shuck corn – cut the bottom one to two inches off of each ear, place two ears on a plate put in microwave, cook for 1 minute, twist the tops and pull the silk and leaves right off the cob (a little hot for my hands I fold a paper towel and pull). Corn is part way cooked so might cook even faster in the cooler for your method.
