You can peel back the husk and take off the silk, then push the husk back, then soak in water for 10 minutes and put right on the drill.

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. " Thomas Jefferson
I just throw the whole ear of corn, husk and all into the microwave for 1 min 45 seconds to 2 minutes depending on the size. After I take it out and let it cool for a few minutes. I pick it up with a dish towel and peel off the husk. I then just grab the silk at the top of the ear and pull it off in one step. (It comes right off easily)
I then just eat it plain, no butter, no salt, no clean up, no waste. YUM

sounds great. I cook it that way too, but also I pull down the husk but don't pull it all the way off. I clean it, remove any of the strings and pull the husk back up and bake it. It's good in the oven as well as on the grill. I think it seals in the flavor better that way.

I bought some corn on the cob today at the Farmer's Market and took a lesson from my son on cooking it. After it is shucked and cleaned wet a paper towel, wrap it around the ear of corn and then wrap in foil. He puts his on the BBQ, but I put mine in the over for 35 minutes and it was delicious, so sweet and jucy.
