Spicy Grilled Corn

6 ears corn, shucked and cleaned
2 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt

Place corn in a large pot, add sugar and fill with water.  Allow to soak for at least 1 hour, up to 4 hours.

Preheat grill to high 15 minutes before you are ready to use it.  In a small bowl, melt butter (microwave for 15-30 seconds).  Add salt and cayenne pepper.  Set aside.

Remove corn from water and place on a tray. Using a basting brush paint butter mixture on corn. 

Place corn on grill with tongs, arrange so they are not touching.

Allow to grill for 3-5 minutes and then check for grill marks.  Once corn is golden brown turn (using tongs) and place uncooked rows of kernels on grill.  Using a grill basting brush, carefully apply a light coating of butter to the top of the corn.  (BE CAREFUL:  Applying too much butter can cause flair ups!!!)  Repeat this until the corn is completely grilled.

Remove from grill and serve.

Corn reheats well in microwave.  To reheat:  cover with a paper towel or plate and microwave in 30 second increments until corn is warm to the touch.
