I love beets, with butter salt and pepper! Here's a great side dish... clean the leaves then steam them like fresh spinach... a little butter, salt and pepper and you'll have the best tasting greens on the planet!

Ever "wilted" them, like spinach?
Remove stem to bottom of leaf, wash, shake and pat dry. Brown some diced onion in bacon drippings, pour hot over beet tops, salt and pepper. There's a warm spinach dressing made similarly,but I don't know the recipe.

I've sauteed them in bacon grease, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. They are good that way too.

Maybe you could wrap them in a damp towel and pre steam them in the nukulator then smoke them? I do that with taters alot.

I've smoked them and they are amazing. I wrap them loosely in foil, peeled but whole, for about 2 hours depending on the size. As dense as beets are, they absorb the flavor really well. The fork is the best way to see if they are done.

I grow beets every year, one year they were bitter. I found out that You need to add a fertilizer with trace elements to the soil. Lack of boron causes them to be bitter it seems. I love the greens but you need to get the smaller fresh ones in spring.

If I had to guess I would bet that parboiling them first to about 1/2 done before smoking them might be a good idea. Unfortunately there are none around here this time of year except those big ones with almost no flavour.

I loves pickled beets.
