Bureaucrat: BBQ Smells Must Be Confined to Your Property

If you enjoy it and it doesn’t involve degeneracy, chances are that our bureaucratic overlords will eventually get around to taking it away from you — as Scotty Jordan of Pinellas County, Florida learned when a neighbor complained she could smell his barbecue. A bureaucrat informed him that the smell must be confined to his property:

As much as we’d like to mock the official in the video, he’s technically right. The Pinellas County website states in its environmental section: “Commercial barbecue cookers are not exempt from causing a nuisance odor. If a sufficient number of complaints, representing different households, are reported and an Inspector witnesses the problem, they can issue a Warning Letter.”

There is one advantage to living under a government that has grown out of control. If your neighbor annoys you, there is always something you can turn him in to the authorities over.

On tips from J, Rob E, and Hillman.

    Technically for a commercial establishment. Is he selling his bbg? Shoot, sure smells good; let’s go get us some. Seriously, this is harassment. Officials need to tell the complaining neighbor if don’t like smells that come with neighbors, need to move out to the country. Suggestions on how to help this guy?

    More likely some pasty-faced vegan who was offended by by the smell of cookin’ meat. If you were BBQin’ a goat the muzz would be hangin’ over the fence lookin’ to get some.

  51. When we first built our home on the land I found, there was a vaunted CC&R home owner’s association but it went by the wayside pretty quickly. Everyone in our neighborhood is pretty cool even with a few change-overs of neighbors.

    I used to dance on my porch and my neighbors were never bothered by it. lol

  55. Everyone over to Jim’s! I’ll bring the homemade tater salad, mac-salad, cole-slaw and ready to steam corn-on-the cob! I’ll even bring some homemade BBQ sauce if Jim is tuckered out from makin’ sweet, sweet love to that delicious swine. ha-ha

  56. And, yet, I can’t unsee the People of Walmart who wear tats, piercings in places that are just icky and wear flip flops whilst their toenails overreach the edge of the flips and fungus that encroaches on their flops.

    And, if that’s not bad enough, their butt-cracks or ‘thong’ cracks and badly sized clothing of size 4 meant for a size 18 ripping at the seams are supposed to be ‘tolerable’…but the smell of delicious meat bbq-ing is offensive?

    Fo-realz?

    this, for some reason, reminds me of “when a long train of abuses and usurpations,” a phrase with which too many of my fellow citizens are unfamiliar……it is a usurpation to require a homeowner to control the wind that distributes the smell of his barbecue from entering a neighbor’s yard, just as much as to require a smoker of legal cigarettes to prevent his exhalations from blowing downwind…..my guess is, the bbq smells SOOOO good, that the “offended” neighbor is just jealous, but, nevertheless, THE LAW IS ON HER SIDE…..and THAT is EXACTLY where the “long trail of abuses and usurpations” shows up……get rid of these stupid laws!!!!….JURY NULLIFICATION……GOOGLE IT, LEARN IT, LIVE IT!!!…

    meanwhile, i do believe these gentlemen should walk around town – perhaps in some more “gentrified” areas? – and use their own nostrils…..i’m sure there are MANY MANY “unauthorized odors / wayward smoke” complaints just waiting to be called in, any day of the week, and twice on sunday!!!…..if you keep these bureaucrats chasing after “smoke,” maybe they will lose a little of their enthusiasm……..and pay more attention to real problems?…..well, no, not likely, but worth a try…… 🙂

    eewwwww. I went on a cruise once and on the buffet they offered some smelly green slop which I later discovered was some sort of curry dish. It looked like something served up by Grandmama on the Addams Family (I swear I saw it move) and smelled worse. I had to change my seat and sit on the opposite side of the ship. Ugghhh.

    With the average price of a grill at $300, the EPA would sky rocket the price of a grill to where few could afford them. And they would most certainly not be happy with the cooking ability of these jokes of grilling.

  97. My husband told me that when he was in his early twenties, he did repairs in some of these apartment buildings with a lot of Muslims and the curry smell was so nasty it had permanently permeated the walls with stench. *hork*

    When we saw Jurassic park 2 in the theater, there was this curry breathing dragon sitting behind us and the smell was so overwhelming that we had to finally get up and leave.

    If your neighbor is holding human sacrifice in his backyard, I say turn him in. Otherwise, butt the fuck out, busybody. I would set up a canopy in my yard in plain view of the Nazi’s house and watch it 24/7 with my spotting scope. Eventually, she will commit a violation and then I’d turn her ass in. Either that, or she would move because of the surveillance. When these bastards start a war you need to bring it to them.

    Little fascist fucks that “turn in” others for minor crap like this deserve any retribution you can rain on them.
