Who would have thought this would happen in Austin, Texas. I'm thinking the complainers are imports.

I think I'll fire up the pit out here on the weekend to keep the Texas tradition alive.

I am not. Never saw the logic in throwing weighted balls at white pins in the hopes of knocking them down. I play contact sports.

But I fail to see your point. Please educate me on the ins and outs of bowling, BBQ and personal property rights.

Some Austin residents complain of the barbecue smoke saying they can’t enjoy their homes they purchased before some of these restaurants moved in.
Maybe all these people are vegetarians?

I mean, the smokey smell of BBQ is just....amazing. I might be pissed if one moved next to me because I'd be craving BBQ every day and eat too much, lol.

Didn't you know: Obama HATES BBQ (even though he's black!). If he hates BBQ, YOU can't have it either. (And he's coming for your ten gallon hats, next)

The agenda is really this: uproot all the good ol' American BBQ joints and install gay bars and clubs at every corner. Didn't you know that's the new liberal America?

Better yet Texas should get together and throw one huge FREE BBQ festival for everyone......Only catch is you have show a local Texas drivers license to participate.

Looks like the big government maniacs are rolling fast.

I bet Washington DC has some influence in this.

It's like they're after anything American.

Slow boiling frog agenda.

I can see that BUT, as has been stated, food is a HUGE draw. Not only for tourists but locals as well. How are these home owners going to feel when their tax rates are raised because city counsel has to make up lost revenue through these venues. That money has to come from somewhere.

I hate to tell you this but this was in the making before obama came around, the smokers have been warning people that it wouldn't stop with them, and guess what, it ain't stopping with cigarettes! or barbecues!!!
we can all find something that bugs us and well if we can enough people who are bugged by the same thing, we are gonna obliterate it from reality!!!

Its obviously over your head.
Pointless.

Enjoy your PC tofu tacos


Yes it did. Went right over my head. Sorry, not up to date on bowler lingo.

Also, you assume that I'm some tofu eating Liberal? You're wrong. I'm a meat eating socialist that enjoys my home and personal property rights more than I enjoy the smell of my neighbors BBQ.

Perhaps I missed in the constitution where BBQ smoke had more protections than personal property rights.

Anyone complaining about the smell of BBQ needs to turn in their TEXAS card and be escorted to the nearest state border.


Smelling it everyday with no escape from it, even in your own home, is too much and can be considered a violation against the home owners.


And can also be considered a health hazard, breathing in smoke every single day.

How to prepare Tofu.
Step 1: Throw it in the trash.
Step 2: Grill some meat.

Most likely brisket using Black Jack Oak wood. But, your suggestion sounds good too.

That's not smelling the food, it's breathing in SMOKE in massive quantities EVERY DAY, which contains CARCINOGENS (you know, those things that cause cancer?).

Just like, um, smoking cigarettes.

Yeah, its like they are thinking that "Smoking BBQ" means that black/gray smoke is bellowing out of these grills and BBQ joints that have contaminated toxic chemicals in them or something. When someone says "Smoking BBQ", its the smell of the food that you're smelling. You're not breathing ACTUAL smoke like you would a cigarette or something.

What personal property rights are you saying are being infringed? Is the air yours? Do you have a fireplace or chimney? Do you mow your lawn?

It offends me when people mow their lawns in the spring, have fireplaces in the winter, and BBQ any time of the year, because the smells crossed my property line and entered my nostrils, thus infringing upon my liberty. (sarcasm)

Grow up bud, your 'property rights' don't trump my rights to do what I want on my property.
