Chincoteague Island,  Virginia
Hawaiian shirts on a clothesline flutter in the wind at the parking lot entrance of Woody's Beach BBQ on Chincoteague Island. The festive tees have been a signal of the place's laid-back atmosphere since the beloved restaurant opened in 2007. (A widow whose husband adored the place donated his collection of shirts when he passed.) Owners Gail and Larry Parsons slow-smoke their racks of ribs using three kinds of fragrant wood. Grab a seat at a picnic table and top the meaty slabs with either a sweet, Memphis-style sauce or a tangy, vinegar-based Carolina-style version.
