Corn Grilling Basket
There's no better way to cook corn on the cob other than grilling. The high dry heat of the fire intensifies the natural sweetness, giving you complex smoky caramel flavors you never knew corn could possess. The task just got a lot easier with the Charcoal Companion and grilling authority Steven Raichlen stainless steel corn basket. Great on a conventional grill and for grilling over a campfire. Just remember to strip off the husk before grilling your corn. The patented stainless steel corn basket with TPR handle features height adjustments to fit any corn thickness and open sides to fit corn of any length. No need for trimming means less corn wasted. One rack holds four ears of corn.
