I think everyone needs a gas grill and a dedicated smoker so I would recommend any gas grill that gets you 5 burners and around 45K BTU and a a smoker of at least Large Big Green Egg capacity so you are probably looking at around $1300 total investment, so to do a $400 gas grill and a $900 Large BGE. What one needs vs what one can make do with and afford is often 2 different things.
I say a 5 burner grill because to cook for 15 to 20 people on 3 burners is tight. If you want to do a bunch of burgers/hot dogs and grill some vegetables would be tight on a 3 burner grill. I just don't see how you could get the surface area you need while maintaining even heat across it with 3 burners, though you could cook the burgers first then do veggies and hot dogs or sausages at the same time but to get it so it all comes off the grill at the same time would be tough.
I don't like smokers with the fire box offset, it is too inefficient and difficult to maintain even heat in the cooking area, the area by the firebox is hotter than the area away from the firebox. I'm not saying you can't do it, just that it is a bit more challenging than an upright type of thing where the heat source is underneath what you are cooking and some sort of heat diffuser between the heat source and the items being cooked like in the case of a BGE or even the cheap water smokers you can get at Lowes/HD.
If budget is tight I'd go get a good grill with 45K BTU or so, 5 heavy duty burners, cast Iron or stainless grill with big bars (not little rods), porcelain coated is fine too, just know it will chip and then become a cast iron grate. If you have a cast iron grate you will want to keep it seasoned with oil so it won't rust..
I'd then get one of those cheap water smokers and use it until I could afford a BGE or BGE clone. You can do 3 pork shoulders on a Large BGE. If you think you ever need to do more than 3 shoulders then you need the Extra large BGE or BGE clone.
Or build your own. Sorry i cant up load a pic for some reason

This. Definitely worth the price!
Chiz is looking for one too. I've been looking for his grill for years now...still cant find it. Nobody can find it. Carmen San Diego and Waldo will be found before Chiz's grill.

Thanks for all of the input. I may be more confused now
Cant go wrong with this one, mixes the classic gold look with the trendier Ice

I have 6 smokers and grills. The one I use the most is the Primo Oval Xl. We love it. My Chargriller at the hunting club is second. I bought a gas grill from Costco for the lifetime warranty and I am on my third one. Keep that in mind if you go gas. RTR first post for grills LOL. Be on the look out for Taggerts seasoning and shimp boil coming to a store near you. F *U
If you want charcoal taste, yet less time monitoring your fire......go BGE.
If you enjoy the art of barbecuing/smoking/grilling (that's me), go charcoal........anything that doesn't allow too much heat to escape out of the back will do.
If you just want to grill burgers, steaks, etc.....no real work involved......go gas.
It's that simple:)
