BBQ Hound`s First Texas BBQ Pilgrammage to Austin

It looks like I need to be in Austin next thursday. I`m going to fly in early on wed. to try my first taste of authentic Texas BBQ. Reading through the posts here, it seems like my first stop should be Lockhart.

Are the places to try Kreuz, Smitty`s and Blacks? I have heard texas bbq is all about brisket and clod. Any other must trys?

I don`t quite understand how previous posters have managed to eat at all these places in one afternoon. I guess the idea is to order a small amount of meat (1/3 pound) at each place? I also see reference to people buying cold sausage to grill at home...I`m thinking maybe I should try to bring some back East.

Pretty excited...I make my own brisket and clod in a WSM, but tasting the real thing is going to be great.
