Oh man. So tonight was a night of the grill. Sure, the meat was meat and needed nothing but a little spice. A little "special" spice, Bubba Brand Steak Shake! (If anyone knows where we can get some more, please share.) But tonight i tried something called "Mexican grilled corn" and was in heaven. I keep forgetting how little preparation things for the grill need and how just being on that heat can transport something simple into something amazing. However, if you want to move to the next step past amazing, try this this trick with your corn next time.
