Grilled Corn & Compound Butter

Throwing this on my blog so I don’t forget what I put into the compound butter:

2 sticks unsalted butter
healthy pinch of kosher salt…maybe 1/2 tsp
3-4 grinds of black pepper
3 cloves garlic finely chopped
4-5 shakes of smoked paprika
A few dribbles of adobo sauce from a can of chipotle peppers…maybe 1 tsp
juice and rind of one lime

I know it’s not terribly scientific but so little of my cooking is. Peel the corn husks back leaving them attached and remove the silk from the corn. Put them back together and soak the ears for around 30 minutes. Throw them on the cooler part of a hot charcoal grill and cook them for half an hour, turning them once halfway through. Let them cool for a few, shuck the corn, then put a little of the butter on it and eat.
