Don't sell your thread short. I could post many times there.

Bone "broth" is just flavored water. Bone stock is what you want.

It's a weather thing for me. With the exception of my Big Chief box smoker, which I use mostly for fish, all my smokers are on the back yard patio. The Eggs laugh at snow or high wind, but my driveway is on the leeward side of my house..... so if I use my Mini WSM or the Big Chief, I'll set them up in the drive way. My drum is so light I can dolly it to the driveway, again to hide from the wind.

My ex-neighbor had a gas grill in his garage that he wheeled out on the driveway, and..... he set up a few extra lawn chairs as kind of a teaser. It was kind of open invitation to for neighbors to stop by (BYOB) and visit and have a few snacks before they cooked their main dinner.

My reason is because my smokers are too big to drag around back and I bought and sold and traded and or built 20 + smokers and I don’t feel like dragging 20+ smokers in and out of the backyard- and my back yard faces 20 acres of soccer fields and faces the north - so I get cold north wind blowing on my back porch all winter long - in the driveway house blocks the cold wind.
And my kitchen connects to the garage.........

Sounds like you have very strong opinions on what other people do on their own property. Why would it matter if someone rolls a cooker out of their garage and cooks in front of their house? This offends your delicate sensibilities?

Out my front door gives me lots of pros vs cons. I have level ground, a covered porch in case of rain, and am just steps away from the kitchen for prep. Only a sick SOB would cook out the back door.

It's always done in the backyard. Why would anyone smoke or grill in front of their houses? It seems like a backyard activity to me.

When I had my backyard offset I felt bad smoking out the neighbors and their kids in the backyard constantly for endless hours. Cooking in the driveway would have been better and not bothered anyone. Grilling...backyard.

I have no windows, other than bedroom windows, facing the front of my house. That makes it difficult to see if my front yard is on fire. I also think it's a little weird but that doesn't mean people shouldn't do it. I'm also paranoid that someone would steal my cooker.

Old house was on a corner lot with the drive way and garage facing the side street.
That's where all the cooking took place.
New (17 years) house, all takes place in the back with the exception of the Blackstone, which lives in the garage which opens to the side of the house.
But never in the front yard.
That's just weird!

My garage door and driveway are on the side of the house. Previous owner built an addition to the back of the house (Florida Room) with the door also on the side. I have no door or patio in the back. I keep my GMG JB in the garage and just roll it out into the driveway to cook. This way I also have easy access to the kitchen.

I also have a small gas grill and my Santa Maria grill that I leave outside on the side of the house. Dave Fisk built my santa maria with the end of a propane tank, 3/8 steel. No fear of rusting out.

RIP Dave, we miss you.

Well my stick burner would not make the corner to get behind the house without running over my fire pit. The kettle ant drum and the griddle are right outside the kitchen door because that makes things easy. But then again my driveway is a dirt road.

My cookers are all over the place. lol My "yard" area is around 3 acres.
I cook north of the house, when the southern summer wind just about knocks me down.
There are several cookers behind the house, close to the patio and swimming pool.
A couple of cookers by my shop.
A couple on the back deck.
My smokehouse and block pit are south of the house.....
and the underground pit is anywhere I can get the backhoe in to dig it!

I live in the middle of nowhere. No neighbors here.
