Easy Cooler Corn for a Crowd
It’s Incredibly Easy.
Here’s Everything you need to Know:
You can fit up to 350 half ears of corn or 175 full ears in two 150 quart coolers. 400 half ears or 200 full ears will easily fit into two 165 quart coolers.
- Husk the corn, then if desired, break the ears in half. NOTE: This is a great job for the youth in the group. (Just sayin’) Alternatively if you’re working with smaller batches, America’s Test Kitchen published a suggestion that works beautifully. Simply cut off the stalk end of the corn a couple inches from the bottom, leaving the husk intact. Microwave 1 ear for 2-3 minutes (2 ears for 4-5 minutes). Remove the corn from the microwave, all you need to do is hold the top of the husk (the un-cut end) and shake. The corn will slide right out. (If not, give it another 30 seconds.
- Up to 3 hours before serving, and at least 1 hour, start water boiling.
- You’ll need about 100 quarts of water (50 quarts per cooler) for two 150 quart coolers.
- Divide the cobs evenly between your coolers.
- Pour the boiling water into coolers with corn.
- Close cooler lid and don’t open it for at least 30 minutes, or until time to serve.
