Marinating Grilled Corn on the Cob for 1,000 People!

Porker - I tend to agree. Once we are actually at the event, we are stretched pretty thin on resources. There's 2 or 3 of us, and one of us is taking orders/money the whole time. So, if i can reduce the grilling time by parboiling in advance, that might make the most sense for me.

Even in Maryland?!?!?! (I know. You make a good point.)

Spread out over the course of the day, so I anticipate a half dozen to ten cobs on the grill at a time.

Thanks, everyone. This is helpful. Due to various constraints, the corn is definitely going to be shucked prior to the event, and grilled.

Should I parboil the corn at home prior to the event? This would cut down on the grilling time, right?

Marinating Grilled Corn on the Cob for 1,000 People!

Once a year, I grill burgers/dogs, etc. at a music festival with attendance of about 1,000.

Next year, I want to serve grilled corn on the cob. In order to have the operation run smoothly, I need to completely shuck the corn in advance (there's limited grill space, and limited time).

If I'm not boiling the corn in advance, and not leaving any of the husks on the corn, is there any point to marinating the corn in advance? I'd rather not serve dry corn (though, that's how I eat it at home off the grill, and I love it). I'd love to do something involving Old Bay.

What can I do? I'm envisioning shucking the corn in advance and putting it in a large container with oil/Old Bay + (whatever), and then throwing it right on the grill. But will the marinade have any impact at all, or am I just wasting my time?

Also, if anyone has any suggestions for speciific marinade recipes involving Old Bay, that would also be helpful.

Thanks!
Mike
