As Texas is the second largest state, I'll prepend "West." The photos below contains GPS coordinates to two free campsites in West Texas. Check out the location in the image, and get directions, with the iOS Photo Investigator App.
The second image is closer to Austin, still westward of the city. Be sure to check out Franklin Barbeque or The Salt Lick, a couple tasty BBQ highlights. The Salt Lick is pretty easy to get in, and has an all you can eat option: Brisket, Ribs, Sausage, and more!
I definitely preferred Franklin Barbeque, but the experience is far different. We got into line at Franklin's at 10 AM on a Saturday, and finally reached the inside of the building around 1 PM. Still, the brisket was the most tender I've ever had the pleasure of devouring, and the other meats were similarly incredible. Here's a shot of the line outside Franklin Barbeque, if you have some time to kill, it was worth the wait, although I'll probably never go again! Bring some beer and make an occasion of it.
