I'm a purist. Butter and salt.

I boil them. Have had them grilled at other people's. I have a charcoal grill that I haven't used in three years. It's not worth it to build a fire just to cook for me, especially like a burger and an ear of corn, lol.

Another time to have corn on the cob is as a late-night snack while cruising City-Data.

On the cob. The "bone" is the inedible part. See also: pizza bones.

I've always eaten and served it as a side dish. The cobs aren't pretty, but neither are many of the other leavings at a meal that is largely comprised of foods eaten with the fingers, like fried chicken or peel and eat shrimp.

I think it's interesting to learn how others do things; that's why I come here.
Corn on the bone? Ok, thatís one I havenít heard before. Is that one of those regional things?
I know if I had said that among my family and/or friends, Iíd get some strange looks, and probably a quick
laugh accompanied with some form of correction.

Sounds like one of those things a child in a family says and then the family continues to say but has no meaning to outsiders.

Never heard of fresh corn being served as its own course. It is a side dish like any other vegetable.

Corn on the bone sounds like something city folk say because they don't know what a cob is.

Splendid. Some things don't mean much to "outsiders" but often, the "outsiders" don't require an explanation to figure it out. Kudos, queen!
