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.



HAHAHAHAHA so now smelling good food is considered a health hazard?? Laughable!!!!


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

Just like, um, smoking cigarettes.

Hello? Earth to GuidedKill?


You're right.

No more BBQ.

Microwave soy patties I say!

Wash it down with some herbal green tea (it's good for the bowels) and then 15 minutes of yoga to aid in peristalsis.

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.

These clueless vegetarian liberals need to take their tofu eating asses where they came from.


There is a difference between smelling food that is smoking (which is great) and being overwhelmed with the SMOKE from a smoker.

Two issues here.

I never said no more BBQ.

I love BBQ, but I am also able to try to see the other side of the argument against the smoke in large daily quantities.

More nonsense about things being banned when they are not.

If the restaurant came after the people bought the home then I see some reason to complain.

But still does seem a little silly.



Liberal idiots are trying to rip the culture out of the South it seems.


Funny how you call other people idiots when you fall for the click bait of it saying they are voting to ban BBQ when that clearly is not the case.

Oh and Obama doesn't run the Austin City Council, lets get that straight as well.

He isn't omnipresent.


If the homeowners were there before the business, they should have voiced their concerns at the zoning board meeting that should have been held when the establishment was seeking a license to operate. Or do they not have these type of business license hearings down there?

I stared you by accident.

Are you serious? You do realize that Austin is A VERY LIBERAL CITY. I live here. It's very common knowledge.

Downtown is filled with Hippies and the LBTG community isn't hidden here like in many places. Vegetarian cuisine is on every corner. So yeah.. It's liberal but not from up north. It's quite healthy and alive IN Austin.

Liberal or not, it's an open a shut case for any rational human being. I am FAR from liberal. I'm so far right, my steering wheel veers right on it's own. Yeah that was a joke, but all jokes aside, I agree that you shouldn't be able to smoke out a home with 100'. I'd say 100' is taking it easy on the business.

Let's say you have a paper mill spewing smoke that's say 100' from your home. That paper mill will smell like rotten fish all day and night. You will stink. Your clothes will stink. Your carpet will stink. Friends and relatives will not visit. I know BBQ smells great, but too much of ANYTHING is too much. I would hate to smell the same bloody thing all day long. Smoke leaves a sticky residue on everything. It doesn't simply go away, especially when there is no time for it to fade out.

I see people complain all the time about how businesses and government stick their nose in our privacy and tell us what we can and can't do with our own belongings.... But it's ok If it's BBQ, right?

Think with your head. Not your stomach.

I live on the coast. I smell the sea, sea food every day.

Now imagine how receptive I would be if I started complaining about the icky ocean smell and that fish smell!

(ew icky fish!)

Anti-BBQ might work for some places near where I live, (I live in Oregon) but Texas?

lolz

It doesn't effect the inside of your house. I live in an area where everyone grills outside and BBQ's all day every single weekend. Its only when you're outside that you can smell the BBQ smoke. When I'm inside, you cannot smell it. I guess you could smell it inside if you left every single window and door open, however, nobody in their right mind does that these days where I live due to the horrible humidity and heat. You need AC or you're miserable when inside. That in itself would be more torture than "BBQ smoke".

BBQ is meant to be smelled here in the South. The smell of BBQ means that its spring time and summer time. A time to be outside enjoying the nice weather with friends and having a beer and BSing. Yeah, if you're outside and smelling BBQ smoke, it means that the weather is nice and that someone is having a good fun family time.

I'm not saying it is the same thing, I'm saying that there is a ton of evidence that wood smoke contains carcinogens just like cigarette smoke contains carcinogens. THEREFORE, it can post a health hazard.

Nonsense? Hardly.

You are way out of touch if you want to compare the aroma of BBQ to an industrial burnoff smell.

You also realize that these BBQ joints typically don't have smoke just billowing out blanketing everything within a 100' radius, sure there is an aroma, but most of these big pits are designed to exit out through a chimney or pipes into the open where the smoke disperses quite rapidly.

I think living in Austin is getting to your head Mr. Ducky.

You're purposefully changing the argument. I'm not talking about the smell of the food itself but the smoke created from the wood used to smoke it.

That said, you're comparing the smoke issue to....the natural smell of the ocean? lol Oh Lord.

No worries man. The logic that takes place on these forums blow my mind. 100' is damn near spitting distance. I'm loosing faith in this world when people don't think rationally. It's all "It's a WAR on BBQ!" when the real issue is the damages and overpowering constant smell that these people endure every single day. I don't think 100' is asking for much. That's much less than a house lot away.

The short answer is, that liberal Austin wants everybody to be PC and they want to lead the way for the young folk from all over the world that come to Austin for the music venues. Vegans and vegetarians don't eat meat no how. Get the picture?

Ok - my last comment because I am still at work and this thread is making me hungry.

I agree there are carcinogens, but what I am saying is that the majority of these BBQ joints push the smoke up through a chimney (whether that is in the restaurant or a smokehouse near the restaurant) and it disperses in the air. Very similar to the effect of fire places.

Now y'all made me have to stop at Railhouse BBQ on the way home...

No you don't love BBQ. You're also from Georgia. Turn in your Southern card and move up North to Minnesota or somewhere.
