stick them straight on the bbq. No pre-cooking required.

nope, just put them straight on and turn regularly. Remember lots and lots and lots of butter. Yummy and I'm on route lol

I always cook them in a pot first then finish off on bbq, but tyou can do it straight on the bbq, just takes longer. If you do it first, then they are all ready just to be put on bbq whenever needed. Enjoy

straight on bbq, stand them on their ends (cut in 1/2 first)

thanks ladies. I have some Piri Piri marinade - do you think that will go nicely on the corn or shall I just use butter?

and what about jacket potatoes? can I cook those on the bbq?
(In case you haven't guessed, we've just bought a gas bbq and we're using it for the first time so we're trying a few new foods to go with it)

pop them in the oven for a while first to get a head start on the cooking.

butter or piri piri for the corn. Your choice. I love butter on my corn personally.

Are there any other foods you're planning on cooking?

Wrap a banana in foil, having first cut a slit in it and filled it with chocolate. Yummy!

Prawns are good. Only take a few minutes.
