You should move your smokers to the other side of the yard...then adopt 20+ feral cats...

One of my neighbors is a really nice lady. She’s a widow who happens to be a vegetarian. She would never come to my door or call me and tell me to shut down my smoker. Ever.

That said...respect goes both ways. I know she likes the subtle smell of bbq smoke (she said it reminds her of her home country) but not anything offensive as her back neighbors smoke cigars/cigarettes (she has commented on how she can’t stand it on warm summer nights when she wants to sit outside).

A few things I do...I don’t burn Mesquite lump because it smells like ass. I usually fire up my WSMs early in the morning so by the time she’s up and opens her door, the smoke is very thin/blue/nonexistent. I try not to smoke on days with a solid breeze. If I am going to fire up in the evening, I’ll give her a heads up. Common courtesy. She insists that I don’t need to run it by her, but sometimes it’s nice to be considered.

Sounds like you handled that right to me. If it's not against HOA rules he can sit and spin.

I'm pretty much with pmad here, but only to a point. There are some people you just cannot make happy. Those people should live far from other people. Sharing the planet with other people can be inconvenient.

I let them use my roads. You'd think that would be enough.

since the patio has a covering, what about installing a smoke draft inducing smoke stack to take the smoke that would normally come under the patio overhang up higher.

I would start with being reasonably accommodating. I am so sorry that bothers you! I'd be happy to make that change. I just invested a lot of money into this patio, but if you would be willing to pay to move it, I can make that change. There are no laws against using a smoker in my own yard, but I can try to help you with this if you're willing to pay the bill because it bothers you that much. You know he won't pony up any cash, but at least it looks like you give a chit.



Some people are just jerks. I would be smoking 24/7 once he started showing up at my door.



Just make sure you stay clear of any HOA Violations if you're going to war with this jackass..

Pretty much how I see it.. ******* neighbors complain.. but don't let that stop you from using your yard. when authority figures get involved.. that's when you shut them down.. simply smile, wave and move on with whatever your doing. lol


Or you could just take your concerns to the association before he does.. Cuz i'm sure your not doing anything wrong as it is.

If there are no local ordinances and the hoa doesn't have anything in writing against cooking in your backyard I would tell him to pound sand and recommend he relocate.

Does the guy have a fire place that he uses ? A buddy of mine had the same kind of jerk neighbor and tried to take him to court because the smoke bothered him . My buddy won because he took a pic of him using his fire place .
