    I was lucky enough to go to City Market about 10 years ago and absolutely loved it. It's a close one between them and Franklin!

    City Market in Luling, just a little further down the road from Lockhart, is also very good and has the atmosphere of an old southern cafe. A big plus about Black's in Lockhart is the cafeteria style serving line with plenty of sides.

    Cheers for the feedback fellas, you've certainly gave me some itinerary options. I'd best lose a few kgs before I leave!!!

    Lockhart is a must. Get the Clod. It is a beef shoulder with rich chuck taste. Charleston - Sticky Fingers is good. I only went to Firey Ron's on Sullivan's Island once, but it is worth a return visit.

    Definitely agree with Willy on Lockhart. Any visit to Austin should also include a short trip to Lockhart. I definitely miss my days of living in Austin.

    Go to Lockhart (about an hour from Austin). I can vouch for Black's BBQ there and I suspect Kreuz and Smitty's are also excellent.

    You will enjoy New Orleans. Despite the probable wait, visit Acme Oyster House and have their BBQ oysters.

    I've only been to the one in Pendleton and there only once, but it's incredible BBQ. The hours are short. Only open certain days. Check the website for details. But, if you can get there it's worth it.

    On your trip East to Charleston, you may want to stop at The Smokin Pig. Here's the website: http://thesmokinpigsc.com

    Decatur, Alabama. Big Bob Gibson ( Chris Lilly) bbq joint. King of pork and chicken with white sauce. Supposed to be his trademark recipe and what that region is known for.

    Sounds amazing. I'm planning a trip to Austin from Australia with my wife and I in the next few months. It pretty much started after reading the Franklin book and seeing a short documentary. I'll stay in Austin then head west taking in New Orleans then up to Memphis before finishing in Charleston( where I got married) any other top BBQ must stops would be appreciated.

    Our son moves to Austin late last summer and we went to visit in Oct. No one wanted to wait in line but me, so I did the wait and called them when I had an idea what time we would get in. It was well worth the wait and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal of brisket, ribs, pulled pork, sausage and turkey.

    Here's my write-up:

    Sort of like a BBQ festival, eh? Happy to hear about your experience and your wife's knowing ways!

    My wife surprised me for a milestone birthday with a trip to Austin this weekend. Landed Friday around midnight, got to hotel around 1am and was in line at Franklin Barbecue at 6:45 Saturday morning. We met some really friendly people in line during the 5+ hour wait. We ordered at noon and watched as they sliced up our moist brisket right in front of us. The first bite was amazing and now I have something to aspire to when aiming for Texas style brisket. We sampled the Tipsy Texan, a pound of brisket, 1 beef rib and a couple of pork ribs. We got to meet Aaron, take some pics and have him sign my book. The food and experience was so good that we returned Sunday morning, although arrived around 7:45 and had almost the same spot in line. We ordered just brisket and a couple of pork ribs this time. It's a long wait for food, but definitely worth it. Meeting fellow barbecue lovers was part of the experience and helped to pass the time.

    You might pick up the Aaron Franklin book: Franklin Barbecue A Meat-Smoking Manifesto. He freely passes on his recipes for his sauces and meats.

    If you go to their website, you can see what days are available for takeout. Some times you can order the same day, or maybe a day or two out.
    My son recently moved to Austin and is making friends. They say that you can go around 1:30 and sometimes get Q without the wait. However, you are taking a chance that they will be out of what you want.
