    I am thinking about getting a charcoal grill with or without a smoker box. I am still leaning towards a Weber One Touch Gold Grill but my sister didn't like the shape of them, despite the fact that I have nothing against the Weber Grills.  I was wondering which grill you would recommend. (I may still lean towards the Weber One Touch Gold and buy a Smokenator 1000 to fit it). My budget is from $100-200.

    Here are my choices:

    1. Any Char Griller model with or without a smoker box.

    2. Char Broil 1280 with offset smoker (their smaller version the American Gourmet Smoker doesn't have adjustable racks and to me it's just too small.

    3. Char Broil Grill 590 with adjustable charcoal tray

    4. Char Broil Grill 800 with two adjustable charcoal trays

    5. Char Broil Santa Fe Model with adjustable charcoal tray

    6. Brinkmann Smoke 'N Grill Charcoal Smoker (can convert to electric)

    7. Brinkmann Gourmet Charcoal Smoker/Grill

    8. Brinkmann Smoke 'N Pit Charcoal Smoker

    9. Master Forge (Lowe's) Charcoal Smoker/Grill

    10. Master Forge (Lowe's) Charcoal Grill with adjustable charcoal tray

    11. Master Forge (Lowe's) Charcoal Grill with two adjustable charcoal trays

    12. Stok Tower Grill

    13. Stok Drum Grill

    14. Kingsford 24" grill w/adjustable charcoal tray

    15. Heck with it, get a Weber and then a Smokenator 1000 (may also fit Stok Tower and Stok Drum grills)-

    As always, any suggestions, comments, or questions are welcome.

    Weber WSM is worth saving a little longer.

    Get the Weber OTG, don't bother with the Smokenator, you can BBQ on the OTG just fine without it. Use the money left over from not getting the Smokenator to buy meat.

    This is how I set up my OTG to BBQ a pork butt(or turkey, or chuck roast... you get the picture)-

    Weber without the smokenator (it's not needed).. just mix wood chunks throughout the charcoal as Cliff says.....

    I agree with the rest. Weber without the smokenator. I used one for decades before getting my large offset. I have not come across anything that you cannot do on the weber.
