Did this in the oven at 180 degrees and it was lovely. Used dairy free margerine because we had a vegan and a vegetarian to dinner.

I tried it, but boiling fresh and tender cobs for 10 minutes results are better, and quicker.

Yummy :-) We're all a bit impatient so just to make sure that the cobs are tender, I usually boil them for about 5-10min first... then wrap and put on the BBQ when you're ready. Delish.

I tried this with olive oil spread instead of butter and some chipotle salt (dried chipotle chillies, salt, pepper and garlic), it was really tasty and went well with a plain roasted chicken.
