Grilled Corn & Basil

12 ears of corn, shucked
1/2 cup butter, cut into 12 pieces
36 fresh basil leaves, washed
aluminum foil to wrap corn 

Turn grill on high to preheat.
Cut 12 sheets of aluminum foil sized to wrap each ear of corn tightly. Place each ear on a separate piece of foil.
Place a piece of butter on each ear. Wrap 3 basil leaves around the ear of corn. Roll the foil around the corn to make a tight package. Repeat for each ear.
Place corn on grill for 20 minutes with lid down. Rotate a 1/4 turn every 5 minutes to help cook and flavor evenly.
Remove from grill. Cook for 5 minutes. Carefully unwrap corn and remove basil leaves.
