I am tickled about finding this super great trick to roast and steam corn at the same time. It is now the main way I make corn on the cob.
Because I DO NOT like the mess of shucking corn. Not at all. Blech.
The only prep you have to do is cut off the tassel part of the corn. Be careful not to cut too far down into the corn, as you want the husks to envelop the corn in order to steam it while it roasts.
Place on a cookie sheet, and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

4-6 ears of corn
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut off tassel part of the corn, making sure you do not cut too far down into the corn, as you want the husks to envelop the corn in order to steam it. Roast for 30 minutes. Let cool slightly. Peel down the husks, can use as a handle to eat the corn.
