Best BBQ near Austin and/or Dallas

I'm visiting Texas from Chicago this weekend and wanted your advice on where to get the best BBQ. I'll be driving between Dallas and Austin but am willing to veer off the beaten path to taste some truly extraordinary food. I've seen several posts on this board on where to get the tastiest BBQ. So far, that list includes:

Black's BBQ (Lockhart)

Louie Mueller's Barbecue (Taylor)

Kreuz Market (Lockhart)

Smitty's Market (Lockhart)

Which of these places would you recommend? Are there other options that I'm missing? I've also heard that there are great places in Luling and Elgin, is this true? Thanks in advance for helping me out!
