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.

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.

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.
