Hill Country Barbecue Market is located near a parking garage that we have parked at a couple of times before. We had no idea there was a BBQ place so close by. Washington Post named Hill Country, the best BBQ in D.C. Their style of BBQ is
from the central Texas. As we walked in we inhaled the aroma. You are simply given a card that you take to the food stations and they mark what you pick on the card. We found the sides that we tried were even better than the meat!!
Sweet Potato Bourbon Mash
I don’t know if I should call this a side or a dessert. It was heavenly and once again I am sure there was some sugar in there and you could really taste the bourbon. We brought most of the mash home but unfortunately we forgot all about it until it was no longer safe to eat it.
Campfire Baked Beans w/Burnt Ends
This was the most delicious baked beans we have ever had. The burnt ends added more goodness to the beans. I am sure there was a lot of sugar in it.
The Pitmaster Brisket, Pork Spare Rib, HC Hot Link, Chicken
Since it was our first time, we asked the guy behind the counter for his recomendation. He told us to get the Pitmaster. What we got was 1/4 lb brisket, one Pork Spare Rib, one HC Hot Link, one chicken leg and a thigh.
The ribs were pretty good. It was smoky and had good amount of meat.
Brisket was smoky but a little dry and not as pink as the picture in their website. That might have been due to the fact that we were the first few people there and got the end pieces rather than the center.
The hot links were too spicy for us and was a little dry.
My husband had the chicken and liked it.
