Brinkmann makes really nice smokers.
Forget about a budget. It's gunna cost ya.
Keep in mind that if well-cared for, a smoker will last a lifetime.
A cheap grill lasts a couple years and then falls apart.
This is as close to like the one I have as you can get.
Price is decent.

Keep it inside the garage when you aren't using it and this smoker will last you a lifetime.
It can be used as a grill as well.

I had a BBQ team for a few years that competited in contests, including the American Royal.

I now have an UBS (upright barrel smoker) that is made from a 55 gallon drum. It is by far the best smoker I have ever used.

I would build my own if I were you. Google ugly barrel smoker or upright barrel smoker. Go build one for less than $100 and thank me later.

Mine flat kicks ass. I love it.

Depending on how much you want to cook will be a factor in this. But in my opinion and many others a "webber smokey mt smoker" is the way to go. There are two sizes and should cook all you need in most cases. If you want I can shoot you to a web-site and there are tons of "pro's" who all reccommend this smoker starting out. I got mine because a buddy of mine does comp's and he suggested it's what I get.

I have owned many smokers. My current UBS is better than any of them

I dug this out of the DHC archives for your edification.
