I always serve it with the meal. If it was up to the BBL, it would be the ONLY thing that would be served for the meal.

I really have never thought of serving it anyway except with dinner. well maybe as an appetizer but certainly not after dinner.

As a side. I'll boil it or grill it. I've never seen anyone eat plain corn on the cob as either an appetizer or dessert item.

We will eat it before the meal. Fresh off the grill and hot. We found when eating it as a side it gets cold almost immediately. So we grill it, butter it, and eat it.

On the occasions that my dtr-in-law serves "corn on the bone", she brings it to the table along with the rest of the food but we opt to eat it when finished or almost finished our main course. Reason? It's too hot right out of the pot. It works for us/them so I have no problem with how anyone opts to do it.

I think it's interesting to learn how others do things; that's why I come here.

Ever since I was a kid, it has always been served before the meal. I simply can't comprehend it any other way. Most of the responses in this thread seem incredibly strange to me.

I'm wondering if it's a regional thing. Everyone that has mentioned eating it before (me, you, and mightyqueen) I believe is in the northeast.

I like it slathered with habanero butter that I make!

I roast the cobs in individual foils, street corn style with a slather of mayo, chili powder, and crumbled Cojita cheese, then when roasted cut the corn from the cobs and place it in individual bowls with lime wedges for drizzling. I serve this with the meal.

Everyone loves it. It's my favorite thing about fresh corn-on-the-cob season.

I may never go back to boiling corn on the cob again.

I typically shuck them, then put on a trio of butter, garlic, steak seasoning. Wrap in foil, then throw on the grill.

Mmm good!
