  • Preheat grill to low heat (300°F). Combine butter, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

  • Remove the corn from the water and pat dry with a clean towel. Pull the husks back and brush the kernels with the butter mixture, then cover again with the husks. Grill the corn, turning a few times, until tender and slightly charred, 15 to 20 minutes. To serve, pull back the husks and tie them together with kitchen twine.
