If you want to save some money, get a digital postal scale off amazon (or whatever). They are cheaper than food scales and you can find ones that measure within 2 grams. Use that for weighing your heavier items (meat, veg, etc.). Then also buy a jewelry scale. Use this for measuring spices, cure, rub, etc. They are cheap and highly accurate. You will like both better than a food scale, especially the jewelry scale as the food scale doesn't measure as precisely (super important if you are making Charcuterie). You will definitely not spend $50. Buy both scales and use the rest of your $50 on a good case of beer.
