8 ears of sweet corn, still in the husk, soaked in water for 24 hours

Salt and pepper

1/4 cup olive oil

3 heads of garlic

2 Vidalia onions, cut into 2-inch rings

10 Roma tomatoes, cut in half

1 stick butter, melted

3 avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced into 1/2-inch slices


  1. Prepare the charcoal for the grill.
  2. Season the corn with salt and pepper. Place the corn on the grill and cook for about 1 hour.
  3. Season the garlic, onions and tomatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper.
