Meatmarket or butcher in Austin, please recommend...

Hello,
I live in North Carolina right now but will be travelling to Austin for a wedding and will be preparing some food for the wedding while I am there. Can anyone recommend where to purchase (order?) a nice brisket and/or pork shoulder (preferably whole but either a large butt or picnic shoulder would be nice). The hostess/bride would prefer it be local if possible, but this is not imperative. Anyone like a particular butcher? Can they get this at Central Market if they ask? Will it be much more expensive from C. M. or Whole Foods?

thanks
smithers
