For More Char:

Try this for even more char and grilled flavor. A few minutes before serving, peel back corn husks and remove silks. Brush with some of the Smoky Lime Butter. Return to grill and grill 5 minutes more or until lightly browned, turning once or twice.

To keep grilled corn warm, cover with foil and let stand up to 20 minutes. Store prepared Smoky Lime Butter, covered, in refrigerator up to 1 week. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour before serving.
