  • 4 medium beets scrubbed and sliced in halves
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh herbs parsley, cilantro, tarragon, etc. (optional)


  • Place beets in a large saucepan. Add salt and cover with water by at least an inch. Bring to a boil and cook until beets are easily pierced with a knife, 25 to 35 min.
  • Drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking. Once cool, peel beets.
  • Meanwhile, preheat smoker/grill to about 375 degrees. Brush beets with oil and add a pinch of salt.
  • Once ready add beets to a "vegetable grill basket" and place in the smoker cooking over indirect heat for 15 to 30 min. depending on how smoky you want them. Remove beets from smoker/grill and cut into smaller slices
  • Make the glaze by mixing balsamic vinegar, sugar, and salt together in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to simmer, stirring as needed, until thick and syrupy and reduced by about half.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool; glaze will thicken as it cools.
  • Serve beets with balsamic glaze drizzled or brushed on and topped crumbled goat cheese and herbs.
