Hi there,
I'm looking to source someone who has the facility to cook corn-on-the-cob (ideally home-grown!) outdoors for a fair in Dublin. Could anyone point me in the right direction?
Many thanks!

Don't know anyone who does that, but simple to do by wrapping the cobs in tinfoil and throwing them on the barby, very tasty as well.

Or don't wrap them in tin foil, and throw em on the BBQ, that way you get a nice smokey BBQ taste on them. Niiice!!

The way I cook corn on the cob on an open fire would be to have the charcoal not too hot. Soak the corn cobs in some water for a few minutes. And then transfer to the coals. It works best if you leave the leaves on the cobs. The leaves will eventually get tinder dry and might even start to smoulder. This is normally an indication that the corn is done.

However if you are going to sell the corn at a fair you do not have the luxury of about 2 hours cooking time. So boil up the corn before hand - for about 20 minutes. Then at the fair place the cobs on a hot charcoal fire for a couple of minutes. The tips of the kernels will scorch and the fire will impart a nice flavour to the corn. This way would require minimum effort and would allow you to chat to the patrons while you take the money off them.
