I created this Smoked Corn on the Cob recipe for when we have the smoker rolling. You’ll smoke the corn towards the end of your cook time on your protein, so the corn is ready when the meat is!
I’ve done this twice now, about to mix my 3rd mixture for the family’s Memorial Day meal. It’s awesomely yummy! 😋

This will likely be the SIMPLEST smoked corn recipe that you find! But don’t let that fool you. This recipe has awesome flavor.
Many recipes call for soaking the corn to keep it from drying out. This isn’t necessary when making smoked corn on the cob unless you’re smoking with a super hot fire over a long period of time.
If it’s rolling higher than your typical 200-225 degrees Fahrenheit, consider soaking your corn for 15-20 minutes prior.
This is my go-to recipe for corn. Absolutely fabulous every time!

Many recipes also call to keep the husks on. You can choose to do this, but you will not get much of a smoke flavor into the kernels. Leaving the husk on will steam the corn, and most of the smoke flavor will stay in the husk.

If you don’t want your corn to take on smoke flavor, but you want to use the smoker to cook it, leaving the husk on is a great way to do it!
We use a Weber Smokey Mountain as our smoker of choice. These column smokers are well built and simple to clean and maintain. Our last one lasted 12 years!
We prefer a mild smoke flavor and typically use pecan wood or cherry wood.
I choose to smoke my corn “naked,” and over a low heat fire for less than an hour. We basted the corn once before placing it on the smoker grates, and then one more time while cooking.
I hope that you and your family enjoy this Smoked Corn on the Cob recipe! If you like it, I bet you’ll also enjoy:
