Refrigerators can  be filled with TONS of gross bacteria, especially the produce drawers. Get in the habit of cleaning yours out weekly before you go grocery shopping, when it’s already empty anyways.

Needed to roast some beets but didn’t want to heat up the house with the oven, so I threw them on the grill after we grilled our dinner and it worked like a charm! I left the cover off, used small beets and let them cook for an hour and they were def soft enough. If you put the lid on, i’m sure they would cook faster! And if your coals aren’t as hot, you could put them right down there in the bottom…but I left mine on up top because my coals were still pretty hot.
