All depends on what else is in your fridge and in your cupboards, you can make a lot of really good stuff with 20 bucks if it's just you to feed. If it's more than you... just make spaghetti or chili.
+1 and what BBQMAFIA said. Pasta is cheap and goes a long way with a nice meat sauce.

If you just feel you need to smoke something, why not do up some cabbage rolls, cabbage is cheap and one head makes a lot, there have been some post on them lately. Also as mentioned meatloaf is a good one. This is not smoked, but how about some hamburger gravy with fried potatoes or even mashed. Sloppy Joe's, with some home fries perhaps, or cheese burger casserole. Hamburger stew, hamburger hash, meatball with either spaghetti or some other pasta, how about Swedish meat balls with noodles. Then if you still need to smoke or grill try some bacon wrapped hamburger steaks.
Let us have a drink and by God lets us not think about the things we ain't never going to know about.

Both my parents worked two jobs growing up, so my mom would throw this together quick in between shifts:

Macaroni soup

1 bottle tomato juice
1 bottle V8
1 lb hamburg
1 clove of garlic, minced
Italian seasoning
Worcestershire sauce
1 large onion, sliced
Elbow macaroni

Sauté the hamburg, onion and garlic. *Add some worcestershire sauce *
Add both bottles of juice and bring to a boil. Add italian seasoning. *Add some macaroni and cook until done.*

Assuming you have some on hand, it would be well under $20. It goes great with some crusty bread.

Also, when she had time, she'd make meatballs rather than hamburg, and add green beans and potatoes, and called it meatball stew.

20$ is a lot for BBQ. I can feed 10 people with that. I also have a financial advantage coming out of college a couple years ago.

With that being said this is my favorite recipe for big groups for cheap. Add frito corn chips and cheese and I promise it will be amazing. I crock pot mine for 10 hours.
