You can cook corn on the barbecue in 2 ways. If you’re in a hurry, boil the corn in water until slightly soft, but not completely tender, about 10 minutes.

Brush with oil or butter, season with salt and pepper and set on the bars of the barbecue to finish cooking and get lovely and charred. Turn the cobs every so often.

If you don’t want to barbecue the corn after boiling, brush with oil or butter and cook on a ridged griddle – preheated until it is almost smoking – turning the corn until charred on all sides. Either way it will take about 5-10 minutes.

Wrap the corn in foil or cook them as they are, burying them in the embers if you’re using coals or on the bars if not. They will take about 30–40 minutes to become tender.

To make the butters, mash all the ingredients for each one together and chill.

When the butter has firmed up, roll into neat sausage shapes, wrap in greaseproof paper and chill again.

Serve the corn hot with rounds of your chosen butter melting over the top of each one.
