“You should be able to feel the kernels that are full and firm almost all the way from the bottom of the ear to the top. The husk should be green and tight. Dried husks or brown means the corn is old,” adds Adkin.
2. Prepare the corn
For a slightly smoky corn, roast it with the husks. To prepare the corn, pull the husk down, remove the silk, and pull up.
Soak the cobs in water for 20 minutes to avoid burning the scales on the grill.
If you want a deeper, more smoky flavour, you can remove the peel and lightly coat it with cooking spray to prevent it from sticking to the grill grates.

Paczosa suggests grilling each side for 3 minutes over medium heat. Watch the corn closely.

After removing your ears of corn from the grill, let them cool slightly. Then it is time to remove the peels and serve.
