That wasn't my intention. This is the best BBQ forum around.
The barbs and shots across the bow sound like any happy hour that I attended while in the Navy.
A few got offended but most just returned fire.

Wow!
Hope I don't get censured or banned for that.


I will say this: when it comes to grilling chicken, I love both right and left wings equally. Thanks folks, I'm here all week. Try the veal,and don't forget to tip your server. :bow:

Most of the time I keep my smoker in the garage and it is quite heavy. I wheel it around to the back yard when I am using it. If it is raining or snowing I use it in the drive way out front otherwise I track all sorts of mud and junk in house.

Robert 02-29-2020 11:53 AM

"It takes all sorts to make the world go round". I live in the "friendly" south. In my adulthood, I have owned two houses. One for 14 years and the second one since 1998 to present. Neither have been in "front porch" neighborhoods. Mainly just a friendly wave and a few conversations out by the mail box from time to time. First house had a pool and we hosted many pool parties/cookouts every summer, but mostly friends not from the neighborhood. Had a screened porch and lots of patio space. All cooking was in the back until 1996 when I started competing in BBQ cook-offs. Cooked on the driveway quite a bit during the first year trying to hone my skills, because new trailer smoker wouldn't fit in back yard. Had a lot more conversations and gave away a lot of bad samples which over time seemed to lessen the curiosity conversations. Moved to new house in 1998. No pool, but more room and had a 14x28 shop and a 12x16 storage building for my quickly growing cooking equipment. Only drawback to this house is no covered cooking area. About five years ago, one of my nephews was getting married. Hosted a pre-wedding party for the local family and my out of town brother and his kids and spouses, about 20 people. Was requested to do ribs and ABT's as that is what they all seem to love most. Smoked a bunch of ribs was going to do the ABT's on the Weber kettles. However, just before I start the chimney's for the kettles, it starts to rain and rain and rain, a veritable toad strangler. Ribs are done and resting. A bunch of ABT's are prepped and ready to go. I do have a covered front porch that runs 3/4 the length of the house. After about 45 minutes of the deluge, we notice that animals are starting to pair up and get in line. So, a command decision was made to move the kettles to the front porch, much to my wife's dismay. Most of the males, and a few females congregated on the porch as we watched the animals getting on the boat and lit the fire and cooked the ABT's. A few cocktails and some reminiscing and some tears from stories of family passed. The neighbors never said a word.


I wished I live in a neighborhood that had folks that cooked on their driveway.

Lot of hurt feelings in this thread.
A daily reminder that some from both sides of the argument just woke ta be offended.
Entertaining stuff though!

I've always lived in neighborhoods where everyone cooked in the backyard. Head out on the deck, neighbor to the left has his Weber going, neighbor behind me has his smoker going, new guy in the corner firing up his gas grill. All good. But I've been to areas/neighborhoods where people pull their grill/smoker out from the garage and fire it up in the driveway. Whatever floats your boat.

Neighbors across the street sit on their front porch & drink in the summer. I'll head on over and imbibe with them. Sometimes I'll bring some BBQ snacks, sometimes a pitcher of Margaritas.

gtr 02-29-2020 08:52 PM

I'm thinking I might kick it up a notch and cook in my neighbors' front yards.

How about invading a stranger's front yard while we're at it. Pants optional. :laugh:

That sounds better than cooking your neighbors in their yards.

:wink: I do all my grilling and smoking in the very early hours while everyone is asleep so no one sees where or what I'm doing. :-P

Andy,


You are so right. At least I used some punctuation, so I've got that going for me. For some reason, English classes were harder than Chinese algebra for me.



I had told myself that I was not going to respond to this thread, but like a light to a moth, I kept coming back. And I composed that quickly in a stream of conscious thought and hit submit. I hit edit and then got sidetracked by having to take the puppy out and then the wife wanted another cup of coffee and I finally hit save. I have now told you more than you care to hear.


So I will finish this by saying this: Life's too short. Cook where you want to. It's only barbecue.


Robert

I recon if you live in a decent neighborhood (and like your neighbors) and are a social type person, it's a good way to get neighbors to stop by for a minute or two.

I don't have a covered area in the backyard, but I have a prep table set up with all my rubs and such in the garage, next to the garage door. My truck is always in the driveway, so I drag whatever I'm cooking with out onto the driveway between it and the garage door, and I can sit inside the garage if I need to stay out of the weather, while still being close to my prep area. It's a pretty ideal setup.

This.

I have a long-ish driveway, house next door is pretty close to their property line. So I have pretty good "concealment". I pull my Weber kettle or WSM right out of the garage and set up right there. Garage is attached, door leads through utility room right to the kitchen. I'm at the end of a cul de sac. Point being it's not super visible and is very convenient. Former neighbors next door and across the street also had similar set-ups. Doesn't seem odd in the least.

Fark me! That has to be a joke? What about people who don't like veggies?
Side note. Can't believe this thread has lasted this long. Yes, partly why I commented, not gonna lie.:twisted:

Very entertaining thread- At first, I was in the "oh yeah? Hold my beer and let me tell you something" camp. Then decided to tuck in and enjoy the ride - no noses were harmed- all good.

That thing on the "vegan runner" tho... if it's not a joke... :grin:

Ok, so we can’t grill in the driveway or the front yard. What if we have a really fancy grill cooler combo? Is that ok as a permanently installed grill in the front? Better yet, we can put the fancy grill cooler combo on the roof next to the couch. Might be on to something!

QN 03-03-2020 07:32 AM

My next door neighbor has an open wood deck on the back of his house; west side, no shade, no covered area and no place to store his grill other than just in the open. He keeps his grill in his garage on the front side of his house and rolls it out on the driveway when he grills. Gives him some shade on the east side of his house and storage for the grill. I'm always happy to see him out there with it fired up. Doesn't bother anyone in the neighborhood and I can't imagine anyone ever complaining.
