Pit barbecue, cooked for hours at a low temperature over a smoldering pile of aromatic wood, is an ideal that area restaurants rarely reach--open pits are outlawed in Montgomery and Prince George's counties.
Kerry Britt makes do, often gloriously. The pit man of this strip-mall restaurant starts his spice-rubbed ribs, briskets, chickens, and turkeys in a closed smoker in the back of the restaurant until the meat turns a deep pink, then finishes them on the grill.
The ribs--the best in the area--aren't too big or thick; the meat's tender succulence compels you to gorge even if you've promised not to.
Also good: Spicy country sausage links; KB Wings; shrimp potato salad.
Open daily for lunch and dinner.
