    Nothing new with grilling chicken but I'm posting this for the marinade used. Boneless, skinless thighs marinated for about 8 hours in about 1/3 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup olive oil, juice of 3-4 limes, 6 +/- crushed garlic cloves, about a thumb sized chunk of ginger grated fine, 2 tsp cumin, 1 Tbl paprika, 1 tsp oregano, 3 Tbl white sugar & 3 Tbl brown sugar. Whisk all up very well and pour over chicken in zip-lock baggie. Flip around every so often, if possible, in the fridge. I just let excess drip off and tossed over well ashed coals so heat wasn't extreme. I had half an eggplant so brushed some olive oil on the exposed side and hit with some kosher salt. Cob corn was soaked in Kosher salted water for a few hours after removing the silks. I gotta say this is my new fav way to do corn on the cob...scrumptious stuff and the eggplant was sublime. GF hates it so I make it just for me...delish on the grill with some char to it.

    To me, the aroma of roasting/grilling corn says State Fair.

    Tasty looking meal Willie! Thanks for sharing the marinade it sounds delicious! 

    I love cooking corn like that. for another twist, after soaking the corn add fresh basil, and cracked black pepper between the husks and the kernels. Wrap back up, i usually tie the husks closed, oh man talk about good. Sometimes I'll coat the kernels with butter then add the basil. Chipotle and paprika are good in there too, or old bay...  All this corn talk has me wanting some grilled corn!

    LOL....hey Case.....yeah, Safeway had them 6 for 2 bucks and they were decent tasting. I have seen 'Mexican Corn' slathered with a goo of some mayo and spices put on after roasting......I've yet to try that....Willie

    Hey Willie,

    Very good marinade... I usually cut down on the soy sauce part, as we here buy meat which has been made kosher, and that effectively means pumped up with tons of salt... But sounds very nice - I love those far east flavours.

    Cheers!
