Smile Advice on what BBQ is best!

Hi I am starting a temporary food stall which includes BBQ corn I wanted to cook on coals and was interested in what some BBQ experts think will work best to cook a corn on Cobb in under 5 mins and be easy to transport! Any suggestions

Cook it completely through in 5 minutes? Boiling water, and the microwave. Cooking on the BBQ would take at-least 30 minutes to an hour depending on how how your temp is.

Try this

I like to leave in the shuck and soak in a bucket of cold water for about 30 mins. Put on medium direct heat and give an occasional roll each five mins or so to scorch up the shucks. When it looks about right and smells good throw in the insulated box. will stay hot for a long time. Peel it right before eating using the peeled back shuck to hold it while eating. The silk is easy to pull back and ignore.

That's the way we have done it.
I don't think you can cook more than 2 ears of corn at a time in less than 5 minutes and that would be in a microwave.

Best to pre-cook and hold. We have put uncooked in the bottom of the cooler underneath the hot cooked, and they came out steamed...really good corn, but no char-taste.

Well I guess I should chime in on this one, being a husker Nebraska boy. First of all, there's no way to properly cook sweet corn in 5 minutes. It should be grilled, with the husk on for about 30 min. Until the husks start to burn. Then you season and eat.

Of course you could always boil em, quarter them up and put them on sticks and then deep fry.

Well if yall are referencing what I said on the five min deal..I said give them a roll each five mins..not total cook time. Usually takes me about 15-20 mins on the cook cycle. Actually it dont bother us raw vegans. to eat raw corn. Thats how us Raw Vegans do it..lol. Much healthier and gives good living enzymes etc. The best way to mess it up is cook too long.
