Hawaiian shirts on a clothesline flutter in the wind at the parking lot entrance of Woody's Beach BBQ on Chincoteague Island. The tees have been a signal of the place's laid-back atmosphere since the restaurant opened in 2007. Owners Gail and Larry Parsons slow-smoke their racks of ribs with three different kinds of wood. Grab a seat at a picnic table and top the meaty slabs with either a sweet, Memphis-style sauce or a tangy, Carolina-style version.
