If barbecue has taught Keith Young one thing, it’s patience. The owner of Young’s BBQ says time is the key ingredient in perfecting his babyback and spare ribs. They first get a douse of marinade spray, then a home-mixed dry rub and, finally, six hours in a smoker fueled by hickory, mesquite and applewood. They’re so good, you won’t need sauce. Instead try some of Young’s signature red skin potato salad and some collard greens.

CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Fenwick Crab House
100 Coastal Hwy., Fenwick Island, 539-2500
Following closely behind crab cakes and blue crabs, the most popular food at Fenwick Crab House is heavenly smoked babyback ribs. The ribs are first given a rubdown in a traditional dry rub and left to chill for 12 hours. Then it’s to the smoker for four hours. Just before serving, a quick slather in a secret ketchup-vinegar house-made barbecue sauce gives the meat a little tang. Starting this fall, owner Scott Fornwalt will ship his ribs across the country via the Internet.
