It's a simple question: If the choice was presented to you, would you choose mayonaise or butter on your corn on the cob? Me, I'm a butter man, but mayo is darn good too. I have a feeling Jeff is a mayo man...

LMAO..definately butter.  I grew up in Iowa, and I would expect someone would get beat down if they were seen putting mayo on their corn.

Yea, Mayo on corn on the cob is extremely common among the mexican population here in california.
Dustin, I can't believe you have never heard of it.  You grew up here.
There are guys with carts that are like little ice cream carts that wander around neighborhoods ringing a bell.  They have hot corn on the cob inside, and will slather it with Mayo and some salt and pepper if you want.
Believe me, it's great.
Butter is just oil/fat, and mayo is made from oil and eggs.  It's not that crazy of a stretch. 

You should all try it.  Get a nice sweet ear of corn, boil it, spread some basic mayo on it, and maybe some salt and pepper.  None of that miracle whip stuff.  You may not like it better, but I bet you'll like it.

Yes it does sound wrong. I think mainly because the mayo would get warm- possiblty even hot, and hot mayo just doesn't sound good to me.

I totally understand that mayo does seem wrong, but what Jeff said is true about the ingredients. I tried it, I like butter more, but it's not bad.

When you get grilled cheese from a restaraunt they often use butter instead of mayo on the bread for grilling. When I worked food services I saw them making it like that. When you would normally put the butter on the outside of the bread before you put it on the cooking surface they were applying mayo. I asked the chef and he told me most restaraunts make it that way.

Here's something sick: I happen to know for a fact that a close relative of a N.A. employee puts mayo on his/her hot dogs. That's just wrong.

How can hot mayo sound wrong?
It gets at least warm on burgers, hot sandwiches etc.

Adam, I know you have a spiritual connection with hot dogs, being from Chicago and all, but ALL hot dog stands in LA have mayo for you.
Go over to wiener man on Western here.  He's got the mayo for you brotha.

Hook you right up.

Jeff

Dustin, forgot to thank you for the grilled corn recipe looks really good.  Will try for sure.

More on the hot mayo thing.
Mayo is one of the "Mother Sauces" in french cooking.  All classic french sauces start with one of 6 Mother Sauces.  The Mayo Mother Sauce is used in many hot recipes.
See this.

Jeff,

I just went to WienerMan (breakfast). You were right, he has Mayo. No bacon though. How can you be a hotdog stand in Los Angeles and not have bacon-wrapped hot dogs?

Ahhh, Adam you should have figured out by now that the magical bacon wrapped hot dog stands appear out of no where at about 1:30 in the morning.  Only outside bars.
No one knows where they come from.  No one knows where they go.  But everyone knows they are sent from God himself.
And yes, they have Mayo for you, and those delicious grilled onions and green peppers.

Hm, I don't like it that way at all. I tried it once staying in Canada. But cornbread is great.
But thinking of it; I would prefer mayonaise. Corn on the cob, it's American I think.
