Here WE ARE, heading back to our favorite butcher shop. To Porterville, Calif., we go. The city that never sleeps. "He was married to one of those women with no lips," says my buddy Irv, "so her lipstick always looked crooked." Irv is weaving stories as we zigzag our way to Porterville, a couple of hours and 50 tall tales from Los Angeles. It's like being on the road with a 45-year-old Tom Sawyer. The speedometer reaches 70. Irv's mouth tops 85.

Barbecuing is like cooking chili. Each devotee is absolutely, incontrovertibly convinced he or she does it best. It is a personal accomplishment that can be equaled by no one and, of course, each is equally certain that his or her personal recipe for barbecue sauce (usually a tightly held secret) cannot be matched by anyone anywhere. We are talking fanatics here. These are grilling and smoke-cooking experts who have no peers. There's only one way to grill or smoke foods for this group . . . and that's their way!

Dear SOS: Over the Christmas holiday season, we quartered at the beautiful Heathman Lodge, Vancouver, Wash., to be near relatives in both Oregon and Washington, and enjoyed its renowned Hudson's Bar and Grill . Among other marvelous presentations was its steamed Manila clams. Do you suppose its chef, Brendan Callaghan, would share his recipe? Robert E. Tumelty Seal Beach Dear Robert: Hudson's Grill was happy to share its recipe for steamed Manila clams, which we've adapted below.

  Dear SOS: Have you tried the roasted veggie burger at Upper West in Santa Monica? If you haven't, you must. It is hands down the best veggie burger on the planet. Would love to see if the Los Angeles Times Test Kitchen can come up with the recipe. Carly Irion Santa Monica carlyirion@gmail.com Dear Carly: Upper West's version of the veggie burger is a wildly flavorful combination of ingredients, packed into a generous patty and grilled to perfection. Served topped with a thick, smoky tomato aioli, roasted piquillo peppers, sliced avocado and a chunky, sweet-tart pineapple relish, this is one burger that might even make a convert out of the most ardent meat lover (at least temporarily)

Ponzu, a Japanese sauce usually consisting of soy sauce, lemon juice, vinegar and a little sugar, can be a bit tricky to make. Too much of one ingredient can throw off the taste. That's why I was thrilled to find bottled ponzu in the supermarket--there's no trick to opening a bottle. Take five minutes to add a few ingredients to the ponzu and you've got a great glaze for chicken. Serve this with stir-fried bok choy and steamed jasmine rice, and you've got a meal. The glaze also would work well on grilled shrimp or fish.

Everyone goes to the Grill on the Alley for a reason. And it isn't to eat. Last Wednesday, Michael Caine arrived precisely at 1 p.m. He made his way to a choice side booth, silently nodding to a few of the dozens of talent agents, managers and lawyers who hold court at the Beverly Hills restaurant (no one at the Grill interrupts anyone -- they're all too important). He slid into the green vinyl booth, ordered a quick two-course meal and exited as silently as he came in.

  Naked ribs Some people like barbecue for the sauce; purists like it for the pork. If you're one of the latter, you have to try these ribs, developed by Food editor Russ Parsons. You don't need a smoker to make them, a good old-fashioned kettle grill will work fine. The trick is concentrating the heat along one side of the grill, so that the ribs can slowly smoke on the cool side. Note also that the dry rub spicing mixture makes enough to repeat this recipe three or four times -- in other words, about a week's worth.
