Your smoker isn’t just for meat – fire it up this summer to smoke sweet corn on the cob! It’s the perfect easy side dish for serving a crowd at a barbecue.
Meat is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about using a smoker, but did you know vegetables can be just as delicious?
We’ve found that one of our absolute favorite foods to cook the smoker is corn on the cob. It’s a simple, hands-off way to make a side dish for a crowd at a barbecue. The smoke adds a really nice hint of flavor that pairs incredibly well with the sweetness of the corn.
How To Make
Making smoked corn is very easy. I make it in my electric smoker by simply placing it straight on the racks.
I prefer applewood chips. Other fruity chips like cherrywood and peach will also work well.
Try to keep your smoker between 225F and 250F.
At 225F, your corn should take about 1 hour to smoke.
Yes! The best way to reheat it is to boil a pot of water on the stove, then drop it in. In just 1-2 minutes your corn will be nice and warm.

Made this over the long weekend while I was smoking some chicken. Came out better than expected! We like to add chili salt and lime to ours. Yum!
