As most hobbies, it depends on your budget. I have the Char-griller Super-Pro with the optional side fire box, www.chargriller.com/superpro.html
. I find this to be a very versatile grill, to grill or smoke. The price is good ($119 at Lowes) for what you get, and you can cook a lot of food at once or enough food for 2. The other grill that I have heard is good is the Weber One-Touch Gold, www.weberbbq.com/bbq/pub/grill/feature. ... 751001&t=c
. I have no experience with this grill, but have read a lot of good things. This grill seems to run about $160.
