As noted above, budget, what you want to cook and for how many are considerations. I wouldn't recommend starting with a small stick burner. simply too much work and the inexpensive models take a lot of tending. You can learn a lot using a weber kettle. And, if you want to build it into a smoker something like the cajun bandit conversion is an excellent option. This arrangement would give you the ability to grill or smoke without making a sizable investment. The downside is limited capacity, but if you are cooking for only a few people this would not be a problem. If you move into a stick burner later I bet you will still use the kettle
