Peel the husk back, remove the silks and soak the corn for a few hours.


15 minutes before smoking, prepare your smoker by adding soaked wood chips or pellets, and preheat to 225 degrees F.


In a small bowl, whisk together butter, brown sugar, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt. Brush corn with butter mixture, and sprinkle with green onions.


Make sure you peel the corn husks back carefully! If you’re too rough or move too quickly, then you run the risk of losing too much of the hull.
