N.C. Barbecue Society honors owner of Smiley’s BBQ

Congrats to Steve Yountz of Smiley’s Lexington BBQ.

Steve Yountz, the owner of Smiley’s Lexington BBQ, continues to have a passion for barbecue cooking nearly four decades after he landed his first job at the former Southern BBQ in Lexington.

The 50-year-old Lexington native (who turns 51 Sunday) was recently named as one of the 2012 inductees for the N.C. Barbecue Society’s Wall of Fame. He was one of four people — the only one from Lexington — to be inducted in this past year’s class.

“I’m honored,” Yountz said. “That’s quite a recognition.”
