    Sounds great to me!
    Now you said Real Butter, and to me anything else is puppy pee. So Butter would be a natural for me.
    What you didn't say is what kind of Cooler to use? I don't want to warp, distort, or otherwise wreck a good cooler with boiling wa-wa.

    It was a coleman cooler. It didn’t distort it at all but it was the first time use for this. I’m thinking multiple uses might take a toll. I wouldn’t use a high priced cooler for this. The corn was still hot 6 hrs later

    I wonder if a cheap old Styrofoam would work?

    (At least until Buba put a toe through it and scalded his foot...)

    I think your idea is pure genius for one of those little crock pots and a 1/2 gallon Mason Jar.

    I don’t think styrofoam would be a good choice for boiling water

    Yup done this many times but we always floated the butter right on top of the hot water in the cooler and as you removed the corn from the cooler it got its butter coating. As you said this works great for a large party.

    Use tongs to pick it up out of cooler. :rolleyes: A course you could do it bare handed and rinse the BBQ off you fingers in the process. :D
