I'm a big fan of Rudy's on 360. They are my measuring stick for my on BBQ off my Big Green Egg.

Franklin BBQ on concordia/I35. Best brisket and great pulled pork. Open at 11am, usually sell out by 1. A line starts forming at 10:30 usually.

Ruby's (Not Rudy's) on 29th and Guad is good, but can be a bit pricey. Rudy's is always reliable and is good if you need a bbq fix and all the good places have already sold out of meat.

If you're willing to drive, Lockhart has 4 stops: Smitty's, Kreuz's, Blacks, Chisolm Trail. You can get a really good feel for what Central Texas BBQ is about from Smitty's and Kreuz's. It's about meat, and not the sauce.

Up in Taylor you have Louie Mueller, which is fantastic and the building it is in is amazing.

There is so much barbecue in the central texas region. There is a reason it is called the barbecue belt.

These two blogs are good for the texas bbq lowdown:
Man Up: Tales of Texas BBQ™ (austin based I think)
Full Custom Gospel BBQ (Dallas based, but still good information)

Only been to Austin once, but I thought Stubb's was good. I know - not exactly out of the way, but I thought it had great atmosphere and good eats. I even bought a T-shirt.

I like Stubbs also. More of an atmosphere thing than a great BBQ thing.

I agree Louis Mueller's in Taylor is superb.

Uncle Billy's on Barton Springs has great pulled pork and OK ribs. They also brew their own beer there too, cool area of Austin.

Louie Muellers and Salt lick are my two favorites. Living in Round Rock they are both close. The Salt Lick at Dell Diamond is nice, well run and quite delicious.

I like Rudy's. In fact, I'm sitting here in Vermont and wearing a Rudy's t-shirt! It is getting pretty ragged as I haven't been there in about 7 years...
