NATIONAL BARBECUE DAY
A barbecue is the same thing as a grill, but barbecuing is NOT the same thing as grilling! Barbecuing is cooking over indirect heat whereas grilling is over direct heat. However both cooking methods can use the same equipment.
Barbecuing often involves basting the food with a sauce (like barbecue sauce, of course!). The meats considered "traditional" barbecue vary by region. In the southeast U.S., pork is more common. In Texas, beef is the meat of choice (most commonly beef brisket).
Barbecue is the proper spelling of the word, but you will also see it spelled barbeque, and abbreviated as BBQ, Bar-B-Q or Bar-B-Que.
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 dash black pepper
2 tablespoons water
Melt butter in small saucepan, add seasonings, and stir. Brush butter mixture on ear of corn. Pull cornhusk up to cover corn and tie with string.
Place in 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish, sprinkle with water, cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
For Grilled Barbecued Corn: Prepare corn as above to the point of placing corn in the baking dish. Instead place corn directly on the grill over a medium hot charcoal fire.
Cook for 30 to 40 minutes, turning every few minutes. Remove husk which will be brown and dry before serving.
Trusting God is a daily choice
23 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER!
