  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

First, husk and wash your corn. Mix the garlic powder, smoked paprika, onion powder, lime zest, cayenne, salt, and chili powder in a small bowl and set aside.

Start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 450 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Place corn on grill, rotate corn every 5 minutes until desired color (about 15-20 minutes).

Roll corn in butter, sprinkle on the seasoning mixture, then place back on grill for 5 more minutes. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and serve immediately.
