You're gonna get a whole bunch of opinions on that one...I'd give some more details, like what you're planning to do with it.

that being said, a WSM (18 or 22, depending on what type of capacity you'll need), is in that price range, and they are easy to use, and perform very well.

Here is simple. Take $100. Build a UDS. More than likely have money left over. Use leftover money for beer and meat. Nuff said.

You can build a nice uds for under $100. Thats the route id go, put up the rest of the money and save it for a rainy day or another smoker or two or three or four...

No such thing as the best smoker, but it's hard to beat an Akorn for the money (about $299 around here)- excellent smoker, and you can do much more with it, too.

If your not into making a UDS Your not going to go wrong with a WSM or an Akorn
