Smoked corn on the cob with melted butter and salt and pepper on a white dinner plate.

Smoked Corn on the Cob

Smoked corn on the cob is the perfect way to cook corn on the cob. The corn steams with butter, while the delicate smoky flavor infuses every kernel of corn. The result is perfectly cooked corn, super juicy, and so flavorful—no need to soak the corn beforehand as we don't leave the husks on. So if you have corn on the cob this summer, make sure to cook it in the smoker for the best-tasting corn ever. Perfect for backyard barbecues with friends and family

  • Smoker
  • Wood pellets
  • Aluminum foil


  • 4 pieces corn on the cob husked
  • 4 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat the smoker. Set the temperature to 225 degrees F. Make sure you have topped it up with wood pellets of your choice.
  • Aluminum Foil. Grab some tin foil or aluminum foil, and tear it off into 12" squares. If you are making a lot of corn, you can make bigger squares to hold 2 ears of corn on the tin foil. It will still cook just as well.
  • Butter, salt, and pepper. Place corn on a piece of aluminum foil and place about 1 tablespoon of butter onto each cob. Sprinkle each cob with ⅛ teaspoon of salt and 1/16 teaspoon of pepper, or to taste.
  • Roll it up and seal. Next, roll up the corn cob in the square of tin foil. Then, fold the ends of the tin foil down.
  • Smoke. Place the foil-wrapped corn on the preheated smoker at 225 degrees F. Smoke for 1 hour. After 1 hour, remove with tongs and serve.
  • Enjoy the best-tasting corn on the cob ever!
