Help! Seeking the Perfect Range Hood

Help! Seeking the Perfect Range Hood

This kitchen gets a lot of use, and we cook meat a couple times per week. After renovating last spring, and living without some of the final touches since then, our kitchen really, really needs an exhaust hood (we're open to either carbon filter or outdoor ventilation methods). After searching, here's what we know...

...that we'd like to not spend a fortune (around $400-$600 would be nice), and just want the basics in terms of design and function.

This one from IKEA was an early top contender, but while the price point is decent, we weren't all that impressed with it in person.

eBay, Craigslist, and Abt are not providing the plethora of affordable options we'd hoped for. Where should we turn for a 36" hood, and what do you think would be ideal for this kitchen?

Please help!

(*Note: new vent hole can be made to suit needs)
