Step 1 Of 7
1. Preheat your smoker to 275°F. Toss a couple wood chunks on top of hot coals.
2. In a large bowl, use a sharp knife to cut the kernels from the cob. Then scrape the cobs with the dull side of the blade to extract the milky liquid.
3. Melt the butter in a large skillet, add jalapeño peppers and cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
4. Add the corn and cook for another 10 minutes.
5. Stir in the heavy cream, Cheddar cheese, sugar, salt and pepper. Simmer for a few minutes to melt the cheese completely.
6. Place the skillet in your smoker. Cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
7. Remove the corn from your smoker and serve as a spicy side dish with your Smoked Beef Brisket with Texas Rub.
