Help me make some corn on the cob that doesn't come out stiff. Looking for tried and true methods for boiling or BBQing corn on the cob.

I have some corn on the cob that i bought from Costco. It is already off the husk.
I normally boil some water, and some salt, and then add the corn on the cob. I let it cook for about 8 minutes and then pull it out. A few times it came out perfect, but the last few times it has been too tough.
I also like cooking my corn on the BBQ sometimes, and because I will be at the BBQ tonight, I would like some tips for cooking it there too. In the past I have buttered the corn, wrapped it in tin foil and put it on the BBQ, but it has always been a trial and error sort of thing.
Does anybody have any methods for cooking corn on the cob perfect, each and every time?
