I have made that trip many times. I have been accused of leaving Austin or Houston just in time to be at CMM for an early lunch. But that's just a rumor.
The fact that some would sully your good name and reputation with those kind of (true) accusations...
I will be in Round Rock next week heading to College Station. Worth the diversion? Better than Franklin? Both run out of Que early, righII would check out Snows in Lexingtonhttp://www.snowsbbq.com/
I'm going to try and stop there when we head down Memorial Day weekend, but since I'm picking up Mrs. G at Love Field in Dallas at 3 and driving straight on, I'm sure they won't have any food left.
Griffin's Grub or you can find me on Facebook
Snows only open on Saturdays. Where is this City Meat Market?
What's good at CMM? Interested to know since I passed it a few times to Snow's but didn't know there's a good Q there.

Sure enough...sometimes it's, (if you get there in time...lol!!) better than others!!
I'd also agree.... if you're into "rankings"...then there's definitely better at other stops in the BBQ Triangle.
That said...One of the cool things about "Texas BBQ"...is it's history and tradition!!
Every time I can...I like to stop and pay my respects, soak in a little local flavor...and tip my hat if you will!!
We're lucky to have so many places to do just that...(as long as you get there in time).,..lol!!!!
Since you're limited in time...pound for pound, there's more good Q (and tradition) in the city of Lockhart ...than most anywhere else in TX!
Not a bad drive from the Austin area either!
Enjoy your stay!
We're headed for our yearly pilgrimage (back) to Northern California in the near future!!
Tell me, Is it just me...or is Elgin Smokehouse (in spite of the hordes of cars there on Sundays)...pretty mediocre Q? After a couple tries...I just don't get the attraction!
I've tried to "talk myself into it" a couple of times after getting to Taylor late, and missing out...but I just give up!
Am I alone here?

I assume you're stopping @ Mueller's in Taylor!
I'd call ahead...and see what time they're usually running out of whatever you're going for, so you're there while there is still some "there" there....(he says..."speaking from experience")...lol!!
During the week they're open till 6...but I'd be there well...well ahead of that...!!
It's a real slice of Texas "Americana"...for sure!
It looks like Mr. President will be in the Austin area on Thursday, the same time as my visit. He's going to a school in Manor and a "unnamed" tech company. I wonder if we both have appointments at the same place? @The Cen-Tex Smoker: I think that your idea about Taylor is spot on. It's on the way to College Station, our final destination.
