Dylan: Agree with others that the Weber Smokey Mountain (WSM) is a great choice for smoking. However, if you want to be able to grill (high heat direct over coals for burgers, steaks, etc.) as well as smoke (low and slow indirect heat for real BBQ -- brisket, ribs, pork shoulder, etc.), then I would suggest the most classic of all -- the 22-in. Weber Kettle (Gold model). About $150, and you can do both types of cooking. For smoking, I recommend placing a "fuse" of charcoal around the bottom of the coal grate (like 3 rows of dominoes that fall over one onto the next -- ask your folks), with some wood chunks along the top, then lighting one end. Place a drip pan in the center, and place BBQ meat over the pan. Keep top and bottom vents open, and close the lid. Should hold 250 degrees for about 5 hrs. You can replenish for more time, or move to the oven at theat point to finish.
