Step 2 is to remove your corn from the pot of water and then brush the corn with an olive oil mixture. We use olive oil, sea salt and pepper. About 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper in about 1/3 cup olive oil for 6 to 8 ears.Pull the corn husks back over the corn before you place it in the smoker. This helps the corn to retain moisture.
