Squamish BC and John’s BBQ Corn on the Cob

BBQ CornHello everyone,

Ropes are terrifying. When rock climbing, I seem to always be second guessing my rope. Will it hold? Will it catch on something sharp, causing it to snap? Will the knot become untied? All kinds of scary things to think about.

Luckily for me, John is very committed when it comes to rope safety. He knows such important things as which rope to buy, what knots to tie, and when to retire a rope and buy a new one. I bless his meticulousness every time I am suspended more than 3 feet in the air. On top of that, John is a rope magician, dazzling me with his rope skills. To me, he can make one rope look like four,
creating anchors, tying it here and there, to me, to him, throwing it around with impressive control like it’s no one’s
business. I don’t understand how it doesn’t get tangled.

And then there’s me, having issues with my climbing shoe laces. Good thing he’s around.

So up I went, and the rope caught me every time.

BBQ Corn on the Cob

Just on time for the summer!

This recipe has two things going for it. 1) It is embarrassingly easy 2) It has the potential to eclipse meat as the highlight of your meal (yes, I actually said that.) It is perfect for camping with little prep, little cook time and little clean up!

In our experience, corn on the cob is usually grilled right in the husk. This is WRONG! Corn is only to be grilled once the husk has been removed.

On the BBQ, the corn becomes so nice and charred and caramelized. It’s kind of fun when you are grilling and the odd kernel pops.


  • Grill on direct heat
  • If the corn burns a little, that is good news for you

Brain dead simple and astoundingly delicious. You have to give this one a try at your next BBQ or on your next camping trip. Your friends will love you.

Special thanks to Richie Warke for the corn photo!

Bon appetit,
