From a press release:
“Hill Country Barbecue Market is excited to revive the Backyard Barbecue, a summer pop-up at the National Building Museum (5th & F St) on Thursday, July 6. After a brief hiatus last summer, the Backyard Barbecue returns to the West Lawn for the third summer season, making it the place to chow down on authentic central Texas-style barbecue, imbibe and enjoy live music.
Just in time for the start of summer, Hill Country packs the green with fresh furniture and lounge chairs, tents for shade and yard games. A full bar offers refreshing brews and two new frozen drinks; the Sauza Lone Stargarita and the Jim Beam Southern Slush with black tea, orange juice and lemonade. The seasonal watering hole is both dog- and family-friendly with live music Friday to Sunday.

Named among the “Best Barbecue in D.C.” and “The Best Cheap Barbecue Joints Around D.C.” Hill Country’s menu for the Backyard Barbecue is the embodiment of summer. New to the menu this summer, the Texas cheesesteak is a heaping of shredded brisket topped with Serrano peppers and caramelized onions, served Martin’s hoagie roll. Other meat options include sliced brisket by the half-pound, a pulled pork sandwich on a potato roll and an authentic Texas hot link on a long roll topped with sauerkraut and Shiner mustard. All meats are served for $15 with choice of confetti coleslaw, cucumber salad, and baked beans on the side.
Beginning July 6, Backyard Barbecue opens at 4pm on Thursday and Friday and 12pm on Saturday and Sunday. On Wednesday, Hill Country will serve its acclaimed barbecue inside the National Building Museum.”
