Prepare grill for high heat cooking, placing grill basket on the grill to preheat. Place tomatoes in the grill basket and allow them to cook for approximately 5 minutes, moving them frequently until lightly charred and beginning to split.
Remove tomatoes from the grill and set aside to cool. Place corn on the grill and cook for approximately 15 minutes until lightly charred on all sides. Remove from the grill and cut the kernels off of the cob.
