Florida Man Ordered by City to Keep BBQ Smell From Leaving His Property

Infowars – by Mikael Thalen

Video of the incident, originally posted to Facebook Wednesday by homeowner Scotty Jordan, showsPinellas County Environmental Specialist Joe Graham discussing the alleged infraction with Jordan and friends after a nearby neighbor alerted the county.

“I’m only here because of the odor,” Graham says. “I’m only here because of the smoke.”

During the conversation, Graham asserts that the men are in violation of a local “rule” that bans the smell of BBQ from crossing over one’s property line.

“I can smell it again right now, but I’m on your property,” Graham tells the group. “You’re allowed to have it smell on your property, so that doesn’t count, but when I’m on the street, that’s when it counts.”

Astonished by the claim, the cameraman asks Graham how the group, or anyone for that matter, would be able to control where odor travels.

“So we’re supposed to control the smoke and the wind and where it’s blowing it?” he asks.

Graham goes on to suggest that the group move their BBQ on a regular basis in conjunction with wind patterns or purchase a specialized version designed to minimize smoke.

The local ordinance, similar to countless others across the country, falls in line with a longstanding effort from the Environmental Protection Agency that aims to limit everything from BBQs to wood stoves under the guise of reducing pollution.

  1. You have got to be sh!ttin me. Sounds like a late night gas can writing on her lawn may be in order. A flaming bag of sh!t at her front door may be in order. A few dog turds in the mail box, just may be in order. A pin hole in the low pressure line of her AC, may be in order.

    In all my life, I have never heard such ridiculous nonsense. “The smoke cannot leave your property”,…..ROFL!!!!

  2. The teaspoons of commie S!!T are by far surpassing the proverbial 5 gallon bucket let alone a 55 gal!
    It don’t get any stupider except for the fact that someone would actually employ themselves as a Politically Correct “Environmental Specialist”. Joe Graham has no shame! Surely there is something wrong someone who would have such a job…Judas Priest!!
    And folks that hide and let someone else handle their complaint!(as if was worthy to complain about)
    I used to be a Water Disbursement Specialist, which means that I hung gutter and downspout. lol
    This Environmental Specialist is no more than an effin Political Officer!
    I find it hard to imagine even living in a city ever again!

    Okay. There’s my minor rant for the day.

    1. No different than the tax men of 1774…they fixed them with boiling tar and feathers. Same should work now days.

  3. I’m used to asshole neighbors, but this one certainly has mine beat!

    How friggin’ un-American can someone be? Unless somebody was cooking something other than food, and can’t understand the applied logic. (if applied at all)

    Under this same principle from the article, can I call the ‘authorities’ on the moron across the “street” for disturbing my mental space with his very loud 1980s music and/or the obnoxious Harley that he has to gun all the time?
    I was told that he was an ‘ex-alcoholic’, and that may or may not be true, but after like 25 or more years he seems to still be an asshole. (there’s tons more stories about that crew over the years, but most people already have their own neighborhood loud-mouth showoff types to contend with)

  4. I wish I had that option when the Filipinos across the street ( up wind ) BBQ entrails in their driveway . . . . .

  5. Hey, Pinellas County Environmental Specialist Joe Graham. What level of iq would qualify you for this position? I would be ashamed to sleep at night. The circus just continues to amaze.

  6. Coming next… class A felony for farting, if your neighbor gets a whiff and reports it.

    Insanity abounds.

  7. Reminds me of the dimwit that moved from a city in Kommiefornia into a rural mountain community I lived in here in Idaho and tried to have a law firm get wood burning stoves banned “because she didn’t like the smell of the smoke” it’s almost as if extreme stupidity has become like a highly contagious virus anymore….

  8. “….discussing the alleged infraction with Jordan and friends after a nearby neighbor alerted the county.”

    It’ll be nice to see all of these rat bastards get their cell-phones rammed up their rectums sideways.

    This guy is being harassed by his neighbors for one reason or another, and they’re using the bureaucrats to do their fighting for them. There’s probably an on-going feud going on that’s not reported here, but it’s disgusting that his enemy is too cowardly to confront the man, and instead hides behind his curtains and rats him out to the pigs at every opportunity.

    I hope the rat bastard is identified, and punished.


    OMG….I’m speechless.

    Hahahaha!! I’m totaly speechless.

    Just when I thought people couldn’t be any more insane.

    What’s next? If bad body odor or bad breath leaves your property, you get fined?

    1. I read an article a while back about someone with body odor being removed from a library and being told that if he returned it would be a huge fine.

  10. The County Board will back Graham’s views
    and the County Sheriff will enforce Graham’s views.
    Graham is exercising more power than God!
    All bow and worship “THE STATE”!

  11. Each Friday night after work, Bubba would fire up his outdoor grill and cook a venison steak.

    But all of Bubba’s neighbors were Catholic….and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on Friday. The delicious aroma from the grilled venison
    steaks was causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.

    The Priest came to visit Bubba and suggested that he become a Catholic. After several classes and much study, Bubba attended Mass…..and as the priest sprinkled holy water over him, he said, “You were born a Baptist, and raised a Baptist, but now you are a Catholic.”

    Bubba’s neighbors were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived, and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison again filled the neighborhood. The Priest was called immediately by the neighbors and as he rushed into Bubba’s yard clutching a rosary preparing to scold him, he stopped and watched in amazement.

    There stood Bubba, clutching a small bottle of holy water which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat and chanted: “You wuz born a deer, you wuz raised a deer, but now you is a catfish.

  12. I would find the most stikin smell to cook, cabbage and leave all the windows open, heck cook it on the grill and smell a burn smell, plant a stinkin bush whatever I would do something . Oh, burned beans really stink, but I guess it could get expensive trying to prove my point. This is the most ludicrous thing I have heard today, neighbors can suck.

  13. When I was in Florida growing up we whites had an old school. They built a brand new very NICE school for the Negro kids. A year after it opened there was not one window intact in that new school and looked a lot worse than the OLD white school.

    The practical upshot of this is that the Negros behaved like wild animals and treated something nice given to them like garbage.

    The fact of the matter a lot of people just don’t want Negros in their neighborhood. I agree the methods are a bit sneaky, but on the other hand this was a Caucasian woman trying to live near probably BOOM BOOM music and house parties of a bunch of CATERWAULING SAVAGES, and was the only one probably who wasn’t a self hating Caucasian apologizing for existing and is fighting back against these animals in the only why she can. Notice how they suggested that the city agent “Shoot that bitch”? That is what they are.

    Look at that nice house and cars these jigs have. Must be nice to be so well off. See how Affirmative Action Quotas work?

    They have have created much of their own problems. Some woman has balls enough to take them on to get them out of that neighborhood. If the Men of that neighborhood had any balls they would directly give an ultimatum to sell out and leave or things could be much worse than the ultimatum.

    I would not handle the situation like the that woman across the street. I probably would be direct about it and escalate things to a physical confrontation, but that is just me.

    Also the first crimes committed against me were by NEGROS. Nothing I’ve ever had rammed down my throat in the way of school propaganda or upbringing as far as being “Tolerant” ever phased me in my real opinion of that bunch, with very few exceptions. Most of them I would not want to live near. Whenever they start gathering in larger numbers everything starts going straight to HELL!!! I don’t bloody care what people think either, because my low opinion of that bunch is well earned.

    1. Another story from the late 70’s early 80’s is how the city of Vidor Texas was corrupted by the Federal Government into taking hundreds of Negros from Jew York City and building an apartment building for them in Vidor. Vidor being the head of the Southern KKK fought it tooth and nail but the Feds put up the money and built the building. Soon after 12 full buses arrived from the north and the building was occupied. Two months later the building was condemned and torn down and the occupants returned to their homeland. What had caused the condemnation? The ripped out all the copper plumbing and all the copper wiring to sell at recycling centers to get money for drugs. No toilets worked, no water was available. Sounds like they came from some third world country. Wait…..They did! The government after spending millions on another failed social experiment left Vidor alone.
