Your speculation seems to have no bounds.
Maybe the barbecue bastards have enlisted aliens to help them in tormenting their poor neighbor with smells?
Seriously... if MY neighbor TOOK ME TO COURT because of the smell of my barbecue, I'd call some cousins in the south to come up and start a pig farm up on my property.
Ever been downwind of that? And perfectly legal for me.
Then I would probably play "Do you really want to hurt me" at 80 decibels on the property line, looped... forever.
I had thought that some people protesting her was fitting.
So is a peaceful protest bad to you as well?
There are two types of chemical reactions that occur when you barbecue meat. First, fat drippings from meat create smoke that contains chemicals called PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons). When the smoke surrounds the meat during the cooking process, it transfers those carcinogenic PAHs onto the meat itself.
I'm kind of torn on the issue really.

I must admit that I cannot understand bbq grilling meat smelling offensive. I can see myself complaining though since my neighbor has allowed one of those mobile BBQ trailers to set up on his property and those delicious smells wafting over my fence are extremely overwhelming. Makes my mouth water and my stomach kicks in grumbling that it wants meat! I am forced to cook myself up some on my own BBQ more often now! Aaugh! The cruelty of my neighbors knows no bounds!

This stems from a prevalent mindset where I don't like something, therefore YOU must not do it.
The vegan is no better than a book burner, in my opinion.
She doesn't like a book/statue/meat cooking. . . therefore YOU cannot have what SHE dislikes.

Get a kiddie pool, fill it full of bbq sauce
Whoooaaaa there chum! We already got us an Augustus...
We are the one (half) percent
So how many vegans are there in the USA? Based on a sampling of 11,000 adults, aged 17 and over, only two percent of Americans are vegetarian. Only one-in-four vegetarians — or 0.5% of the USA adult population — is vegan. Only half of one percent of the USA population — or 1.62 million of us — is vegan.
84% of vegetarians/vegans abandon their diet. Extrapolated out, that means that there are 8 million lapsed vegans as opposed to the 1.6 million current vegans.
Only about one-in-eight Americans has ever considered themselves vegetarian/vegan. Roughly 88 percent of Americans have always considered themselves omnivorous/carnivorous.
The only reason Vegans get push back like they do is their intolerance towards those who chose to eat a normal diet. They can't just be Vegans, they insist on forcing their lifestyle on everyone around them.
Whenever I see someone trying to force others to do as they do, I pretty much know what their real agenda is. Me, me, me; look at me.
