                Welcome from Wisconsin. Glad you could join us!
                With a $500 budget there a quite a few very good smokers you can get. The Weber Smokey Mountain would be my recommendation, but there are a fair few fans of the flaming garbage can know as the Pit Barrel.

                  Welcome from north Texas. If you love it, cook something! And, yes, the PBC is good for the money. Have fun here.

                    Welcome from The Poconos.

                    The best bang for the buck under $500 is the Weber kettle. There are lots of different models and sizes, but that’s where I’d start. I have a Big Green Egg, and I still do about half my cooking on the kettle.

                            Cocktails: Alton Brown turned me onto boulevardiers. That has become my travel cocktail. At home it is usually spiced rum, vodka, or whisky mixed with ginger ale.

                            Planning on a DIY smoker. **Those plans got scrapped. Between the PBC and the SnS, a DIY smoker project has moved way down the list. Now I want to build an Argentinian style grill!

                            Former homebrewer with plans on returning to it when location and time allows.

                            No restrictions with me (love meats, cheese, veggies, etc...) however a friend I often cook with has celiac so I avoid gluten in my cooking. (PS. Stone delicious is a gluten reduced beer that he highly recommends )

                          Welcome from up the road in the Harrisburg area. When I joined up I couldn't decide what smoker or even what type of smoker I wanted. And I too didn't want to spend more than $500. I took the consensus advice from the Pit family and went with the Pit Barrel Cooker. I'm still super happy with that decision. I love the versatility and a basket of coals runs a long time! And I'll cook anything in it. Traditional stuff like ribs, pork butt, sausages, chicken (whole or thighs) but I have also done fish, meatloaf, stuffed cabbage, and even a ratatouille! I have eventually added a 22" weber kettle with a slow and sear setup and have used that for smoking too. (If the Slow and Sear brand kettle existed when I got the weber kettle, I may have gone with that instead.)
