Will you have a car?  Driving 35 minutes to Taylor or Lockhart will get you better bbq than anywhere besides Franklin.

I'll definitely have a car. We're probably going to drive from the great white north (final destination is actually santa fe nm).

While you should definitely check out Lockhart and/or Taylor, both La BBQ and Valentina's in Austin are top notch, minus the Franklin line.  (Though there can still be lines at those places... just not four-plus-hour lines.)

Say what you will about the ten commandments, you must always come back to the pleasant fact that there are only ten of them.

Hoping to be back in the summer, when Micklethwaites and Bufalina will be top of list.

ETA: Oh more BBQ recs from Dilley. Thanks!
