Put a big camo tarp in the bed and run a hose from the tailpipe into the water filled bed. Now we have ourselves a "Driveway Jacuzzi", boys!!:thumb:

I guess Iím just having a hard time understanding why spending time in your front yard is offensive.....what are you suppose to do in space you own?

Are block parties out?
I live in the country, but attended a couple of neighborhood parties with friends. They roped off the street, hired a band, and everyone brought food and beverages to share.
It was a lot of fun! :cool::grin:

I can almost guarantee that he did not think he'd get rolled in dirt this hard.

I could have warned him- but I'm one of "those people" who do what he can't understand people doing.

Annnnd I'm doing it again this weekend so- "neener neener"

Hello no! My buddies do one a few times a year. Block off the culdesac, blow up the huge inflatable they own, bring all the kids, bring beer, neighbors toss up canopies for shade, folks bring food, I bring a smoker to cook some bbq on......oh this smoker is on their front porch or driveway. We have so much damn fun with everyone out in front of their homes! :clap2: :becky:

Even some of the neighbors that don't always come outside even come out for these, lol. Amazing what a bunch of laughing neighbors drinking beer and laughing kids does :mrgreen:

Given all that I said on this topic, it should be very obvious, using only basic reading comprehension, that I donít like the idea of grilling, barbecuing and lounging in front of my house. Proof is that I admitted learning about this practice years ago via internet media and if I liked or even understood the reasoning behind the idea, I would have done it myself. I also told you that even if I did it, my neighbors would complain. Being a neighbor to someone else in my neighborhood, it then follows that I would not like to see people grilling and lounging in a hammock in their front yard. I think it takes away from the aesthetics of the neighborhood and makes it more like a perpetual street festival. So it should come as no surprise that I wouldnít want to see this in my neighborhood. Your comment says more about you and your own self-image to imply that my not liking this activity amounts to looking down on others.

Having said that, I simply did not and still do not understand, in most cases, why anyone would preferentially choose to grill, barbecue and lounge around in public. I have never seen it in person and would still hope nobody in my neighborhood takes it up.

Happy grilling and barbecuing.

I bust my hump all week in a job that has plenty of public criticism and now some sumbitch has the balls to tell me I recreate in an offensive way? Come on up to northern Minnesota sometime when I get the applewood smoke rolling out of my beloved green Weber kettle in the driveway and kiss my substantial white ass if you donít like what Iím doing in the front yard I have owned for 20 years.

Everything lives out back EXCEPT the stick burner. She lives in the garage and and attracts a crowd when she is TBSing out front.

Bad take Jersey.

I had a new neighbor move in last summer. Right around the time I was stripping down the Shirley for prep and paint in the front driveway. It maybe didn't look the best but it wasn't hurting anyone. I'd pull the Shirley out and work on it during the weekends. I had one neighbor who I hardly know honk and give me a thumbs up when she drove by while I was working on it. I eventually ran into my other new neighbor. He goes, "Are you the one who has had that big smoker in the driveway?" Yeah I'm the one. "That thing is awesome. If I ever see you out with it would you mind if I stop by and take a look at it? I have an electric smoker." Right than and there I knew we had some great new neighbors. Sure enough he stopped over when I was still working on the Shirley. I explained how the smoker worked since it was reverse flow. (I live in MN. Seeing any type of smoker is a needle in a haystack) He also stopped one other time to show his son the smoker.

I'm very fortunate to have good neighbors around me. I have a jogging path that runs through the backyard. I'd rather sit and chat with my neighbors than some random strangers jogging/biking through the back while throwing on sticks or starting the BGE's. I'll even drop off Q for the neighbors when I find myself with extra.

My one neighbor has a firepit he drags out on his driveway and lights during the weekend. He invites neighbors to come over and hang out and have a couple beers. It's nice walking outside and hear people laughing and interacting with one another. It's the neighborhoods where everyone hides inside and doesn't interact with one another that scare me.

Lot to digest in this thread. OP finds himself like the Houston Astros after the scandal and we all must learn - "If you find yourself in a hole - Stop Digging."
I love adages - they are ALWAYS true.

In my neighborhood. If I left any of my smokers out front/in driveway. They would disappear in a heart beat. Even faster if there was cooked meat in it.
My neighborhood friends get fed good thought!
Ahh, the wonders of living so close to 8 mile Detroit. :roll:

My old house I used to cook in the driveway. The neighbors were always coming around when they smelled sweet blue.
