Bill Elwell doesn't want any more customers, but they just keep coming. "Is McDonald's closed today?" he likes to grunt to those lined up outside his tiny burger stand in an industrial pocket of the San Fernando Valley. "Why is everyone here? Go down the street!" Elwell is 87 and cranky, and folks can't seem to get enough of him. It's been 49 years since Elwell took to the grill of his 10-by-20-foot burger stand on Oxnard Street where Van Nuys meets Sherman Oaks. He once flipped a burger from grill to floor to shush a customer complaining about too much mayonnaise.

Whether you're a bona fide pit master or just a weekend warrior, there's nothing more important than maintaining the proper heat in the grill. Cook too hot, and you'll turn those baby back ribs into jerky on the bone. Cook too low, and, well, you may be smoking hours longer than you intended. A simple grill thermometer makes easy work of regulating the heat of the smoker, barbecue or grill. A grill thermometer looks like a common instant-read thermometer, except it has a really big dial for easy reading with a short, thick stem.

Among the hundreds of gadgets, games and apps at January's Consumer Electronics Show, few had the sizzle of James Buch's gleaming silver hunk of hardware. That's because the device is a barbecue grill - one that's Wi-Fi enabled, voice activated and chatty in a Siri-ish way. "When the Lynx Smart Grill is ready for the food, it sends you a text," said Buch, chief executive of Lynx Professional Grills of Downey. "When it's time to flip the food, it sends you a text. When the food is ready, it sends you a text.

JAZZ The son of a jazz royalty in Alice and John Coltrane, Ravi Coltrane may never fully escape his parents' shadow, but on his latest album "Spirit Fiction" he sounds utterly at peace with that reality. A knotty and expressive release that nods toward his mother and father's restless creativity while at the same time encapsulating a logical extension of it, the quietly addictive album may be Coltrane's best yet. Here he performs in a quartet anchored by fiery young drummer E.J. Strickland.

Everyone who has ever painted knows that bristles can fall off the paint brush and mar your new surface. It probably should not be a great surprise, then, that bristles can come off a wire brush used for cleaning an outdoor grill, get taken up by food and ingested. Once in the throat or intestines, the bristles can cause serious damage, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned this week in its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. A team of physicians from Brown University's Alpert School of Medicine reported that they had observed six cases of such injury between March 2011 and June 2012.

The next time you're going to throw some steaks on the grill, take them out of the refrigerator a little early to take off the chill before cooking. "Tempering" the meat allows it to cook more evenly, so the inside can actually cook as the outside works up a nice char. Place your steaks or other meats in a cool, safe spot indoors to take off the chill, 20 or so minutes for thin cuts and longer if you're cooking something big -- famous Italian butcher Dario Cecchini calls for leaving a thick porterhouse out five to six hours when grilling his Bistecca fiorentina (the recipe follows below)

One of the finest sleights of hand in music is to write a song that sounds like a long-lost standard. Equally impressive, however, is the rare ability to perform a classic song and make it sound utterly new. Those are just two skills at the disposal of rising star vocalist C é cile McLorin Salvant, whose Grammy-nominated sophomore album, "WomanChild," was one of the sharpest, most magnetic releases of 2013. She wound up losing out to another breakout jazz vocal star, Gregory Porter, but there was no less of a buzz filling the air Monday night when McLorin Salvant was making her L.A. debut at a crowded Catalina Bar & Grill.

Crisp and nervy, this Txakolina from the Spanish Basque country has more depth than most and a welcome minerality. Scented with Key lime and jasmine, it ends on a slight bitter note, just enough to make you want to take another sip. A serious wine. Of course, it's a brilliant match with crudo or sushi, a chilled seafood platter or grilled fish. Have it with salt-cured anchovies drizzled with olive oil, which is what winemakers typically serve with their Txakolina in the tasting room.

This is winter? Doesn't feel like it. In fact, this is perfect grilling weather. So we laid it out -- salad, side and main course -- fix them all or pick and choose. Grilled romaine with walnuts, Parmesan and anchovy dressing: Grilled tender hearts of romaine are tossed with a fresh anchovy dressing, toasted walnuts and shaved Parmesan for a salad, or light dinner, that comes together in 30 minutes. Green beans with pickled shallots: Green beans are quickly softened over the grill, the lightly charred beans dressed with olive oil, salt and tangy quick-pickled shallots.

ROME -- In their toughest and most public questioning to date about sexual abuse of children by members of the clergy, senior Vatican officials came under heavy criticism Thursday from a United Nations committee over their handling of such cases and promised that changes were underway. "The Holy See gets it," Msgr. Charles Scicluna, the Vatican's former sex crimes prosecutor, told the Committee on the Rights of the Child at a meeting in Geneva. But Scicluna and a colleague maintained the Vatican's position that, while it is responsible for responding to abuses committed within the confines of the Vatican state, it is up to local law enforcers to punish abusive priests around the world.

An easygoing Piemontese red from the underappreciated Dolcetto grape, which is sort of the younger cousin of Nebbiolo. Bright and polished, the 2012 Elio Grasso Dolcetto d'Alba tastes like sweet fresh cherries and plums. It's a really pretty wine, with a minerality that gives it depth. Delicious with a salumi and cheese plate, or with crostini topped with chicken livers or beans. I love it with grilled sausages too, and pasta with meat sauce. Region: Piedmont Price: $15 to $19 Style: Bright and polished What it goes with: Salumi, cheese, crostini, grilled sausages, pasta with meat sauce Where to find it: Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, (949)

VERY nice piece today on "smoke and onions." ["Taste of the Season: Smoke and Onion," by Charles Perry, Jan. 17]. A good reminder that grilling with friends in wintertime is a great way to spice up "ordinary" days. I think I'll dust off that grill of mine tonight. PAUL D. STEENHAUSEN Sacramento

WASHINGTON - Two of the Justice Department's key witnesses in last year's terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, were summoned to Capitol Hill this month and grilled for hours in separate legal depositions. Responding to congressional subpoenas, the State Department security agents were asked how the Libyan terrorists stormed the mission and set parts of it on fire, how they were armed and how they killed four Americans, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, sources with knowledge of the matter said.

WASHINGTON -- Developers of the problematic Obamacare website faced tough questioning at a House oversight committee Thursday, as both Republican and Democratic lawmakers frustrated by the shoddy roll-out sought answers over what went wrong - and when it would be fixed. The hearing was not without its political rhetoric: Republicans seized on the opportunity as their best chance to stop the Affordable Care Act they have been unable to undo; Democrats pivoted to Obamacare's overarching goal of getting uninsured Americans covered.
