Tips for Smoked Corn on the Cob
- Best wood chips and pellets for smoking corn on the cob: apple, peach, cherry, hickory, maple, and mesquite.
- You can cook the corn with the husks on or remove them. I think this is just a personal preference.
- Add smoked corn on the cob to some corn chowder, pasta salads, or just eat it as is with some extra butter! I love using spray butter on my corn on the cob.
- Covering the corn in aluminum foil isn't necessary but it will lock the smoky flavor in more.

Best Electric Smoker
Smoker: I have had my Traeger smoker for a very long time and I would recommend that brand to anyone wanting to learn how to smoke food. There are some very reasonably priced smokers out there for under $100.
- Masterbuilt Charcoal Bullet Smoker. Amazon. ...
- Char-Broil American Gourmet Offset Smoker. Amazon. ...
- Char-Griller 2-2424 Table Top Charcoal Grill and Side Fire Box. Amazon. ...
Traeger Wood Chips: It is my understanding that you can only buy Traeger wood chips where they sell Traeger Grills/Smokers at. The only place I can get their wood chips in town is at my local Ace Hardware store. If you do not want to purchase specific branded woodchips then I'd opt for a different brand of smoker other than Traeger.
