    Being born and raised in South Dakota, I have eaten corn about anyway possible. Nothing beats pealing back a little of the husk, throwing some butter, salt & pepper in there, close it back up and right on the grill. Horizontal method is perfered but I am not against cutting it off with a knife if I do not have floss handy.

    I don't get the point of corn. It goes in, then 6-12 hours later it comes back out with no discernible change. Did I get anything nutritional out of it? Hell, sometimes, it looks better once it's passed through.

    LOL! I think people (me at least) thought that vertical meant holding the cob vertically and eating it up and down. That would just be weird...sorry for being that dumb. I usually eat the corn in vertical rings while holding it horizontally.

    Should I have voted random or vertical???

    I eat the corn ends (vertical) for a better hand hold if necessary, then it's straight horizontal chompin from the fat end to the skinny end. Usually doesn't take much time at all. Butter, salt, black pepper is the norm. I have some corn dishes so i don't waste any butter or seasoning. Lovely vegetable.

    Our bodies don't have the capacity to digest the corn envelope, we are not cows. However, the endosperm (the interior gooey goodness) is the digestable nutrient rich portion. The envelope is cellulosic fiber which has the benefit of helping out your colon. If it looks exactly the same comin out as it did going, I have a piece of advice for you.... chew. Also, how on earth can you fit the cob down your hole?!?

    I'm sure some corn grower funded scientist will eventually tell us that our digestive tract takes a thin unnoticable layer of antioxidants off of the skin as it passes, and this is thought to cure cancer.

    You misunderstood, mate.

    Horizontal would be taking bites from one end to the other while holding it horizontally.

    Vertical would be spinning it after each bite while holding it horizontally.

    I'm a vertical eater. My OCD forces me to precisely clean every possible spec one millimeter at a time starting at one end, working toward the other end.

    Oil with grilled corn? Noooo! Butter matches so much better. Believe me, I live in Spain and we put olive oil everywhere, but whenever eated grilled corn always used butter.

    Damn thread.
    It will be a few more months to get some fresh picked sweet corn on the way home from the trails.
    Hoping this year will be good for corn. Last year was too dry, and the flavor was poor.


    Oh, butter and horizontal, with some corn cob shaped holders that have been around since I was a kid.

    You serious? That is interesting. I have never heard of eating corn with all that on it. Dumb question, but is it good? Just smear mayo on it and add chilli powder?? Melted cheese or not?
