  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.

Unusual rib bones that grow out of the neck are giving scientists new clues about what caused the woolly mammoth to become extinct roughly 10,000 years ago. The so-called cervical ribs - extra rib bones that protrude from the vertebrae at the base of the neck - were about 10 times more common in mammoths living in the Late Pleistocene than they are in elephants alive today, according to a study by Dutch researchers published Tuesday in the...

  Think you can't get really smoky barbecue except from an outdoor pit? L.A. Times Test Kitchen manager Noelle Carter explored the possibilities of indoor smoking this year and found that with a heavy-duty roasting pan, a rack and a lid, you can come pretty dang close. In fact, the trick is not oversmoking. Give them an hour over wood chips, and then switch them to a slow oven to finish. One of the things that makes these ribs so good is the spice rub made with New Mexico chile powder and the final "mop" of distilled vinegar and mustard.

Wondering why Tim Tebow didn't play in the New York Jets' 49-19 loss to the New England Patriots on Thanksgiving? He has two broken ribs. "They need a little time to get better," Tebow after the game, adding that the broken ribs are making it more difficult for him to breathe. Tebow has had a limited role in the Jets' offense this season after being acquired from the Denver Broncos in March. He was expected to add a dynamic element to the offense, particularly in the wildcat package, but he is averaging only about seven plays on offense.

Dear SOS: Will the Urban Tavern Restaurant in the Hilton Union Square, San Francisco share with you and all of us? We had "braised baby back ribs" served over a large-grain type of couscous. The ribs have interesting spices, like allspice, and were so tender we were able to eat them with a fork! I would love to know more about the grain they used too. It was tasty, and just the right accompaniment for the ribs. Lucia Arias Northridge Dear Lucia: We loved these tender, braised ribs, richly flavored yet bright with notes of fennel, coriander, ginger and nutmeg and slow-cooked over a bed of diced apple and celery hearts.

Morrissey may be the man with a thorn in his side, but Jimmy Kimmel has a message for the tortured British singer: Come make your "dumb statements" on my show. Morrissey - former frontman for 1980s rockers the Smiths - canceled an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" this week because the guest list included the stars of "Duck Dynasty," who created a business making duck calls used by hunters. Morrissey, a longtime vegetarian and animal-rights activist, said he couldn't appear alongside people he considers "animal serial killers.

The only real secret to roasting a great prime rib is starting with the best meat possible, and the rib roast I ordered from McCall's Meat & Fish Co. in Los Feliz was so beautiful I badgered my husband to photograph it before it went into the oven. I admired its plump, sturdy shape, the way butcher Nathan McCall had neatly frenched the bones and tied up the roast with precisely spaced knots. It was all natural - no hormones, no antibiotics - Prime Angus beef. At $17.99 a pound, it cost just over $140.

ST. LOUIS - Boston Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester said he has received some good-natured ribbing from his friends and his wife about his penchant for sweating profusely. But Lester is more prepared for the scrutiny he will face Monday night in his first start since he was alleged to have a foreign substance on his glove when he pitched 72/3 scoreless innings Wednesday to beat the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series. "I'm sure there's going to be focus on my glove and focus on my hands and what I'm doing," Lester said Sunday.

BOSTON - This really did not matter much to the Dodgers. They did not qualify for the World Series, and the effort put forth on behalf of the National League was not their concern. To the fans of the Dodgers, however, this was a jolly good evening. After a week of hearing ad nauseam about how the St. Louis Cardinals played the game the right way - the Cardinal way, if you will - Dodgers fans could take solace in the way the Cardinals played in Game 1 of the World Series. If, that is, the Dodgers fans could stop laughing.

Hanley Ramirez has a fractured rib but could still play Monday night in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series. “Hanley's not in any danger of hurting himself any further,” Manager Don Mattingly said. “It's just a painful thing.” The CT scan Ramirez underwent Sunday revealed that he has a fractured eighth rib, according to Mattingly. Whether Ramirez plays will be a game-time decision. He will try to swing a bat and could be in the lineup if he can bear the pain.

ST. LOUIS  - As the Dodgers' dreams of a World Series title turned into something that would require a miracle to be realized, all Hanley Ramirez could do was watch. Clayton Kershaw was pitching a masterpiece Saturday, but Ramirez couldn't help him. The Dodgers' hitters were facing a dominant rookie right-hander in Michael Wacha, but Ramirez couldn't step into the batter's box for any of them. Ramirez was unable to swing a bat, much less play, as the Dodgers dropped a 1-0 decision to the St. Louis Cardinals that increased their deficit to two games to none in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series.

Bob Newhart has a wonderful old bit where he claims that if you gave enough monkeys enough typewriters, sooner or later they would write all the great books. Whether they would come up with great comedy bits is another matter. You have to think that art isn't merely a mob effort. All it really takes is the right monkey. I used to think that if there were no booze, there would've been no great books. What sun is to citrus, hooch is to the recesses of the literary mind. That's not to say aspiring authors should drink.

Hti Tain Monastery, Myanmar - Our horses arrived in a cloud of dust, clattering on the gravel road. Their manes were a little shabby, their saddles worn, but they looked sturdy and lively, capable of the two-day trek that would take me and my sons, Dow, 8, and Orly, 5, out of Kalaw, Myanmar, and into the pale mauve mountains above. We were nine months into a year-long trip around Southeast Asia and Australasia, just the three of us. Already, we'd taken risks we would never have taken at home.
