I’ve lived in all types of suburbs and I’m pretty sure that in any of them, if I put outdoor furniture, a hammock, smokers and bbq grills in my front yard or in front of the house at all, I would hear complaints from the neighbors. Sorry if I offended a few here, but it seems very unusual to do this, unless there’s a necessity, as some have described here.

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.
Best scenario.I am building a new home on the Old Home Place.I can cook wherever I want and still not have to see nosy neighbors.I can't wait!

Some gotta do what they gotta do.I understand that.Big trend around here is folks hanging out,kids playing in front yard.Gotta be careful coming in from work,snots will dart out into the road in a flash.They all have fenced in back yards but also have Adirondack chairs and such sitting out front like it is Mayberry.I have not seen any cooking/ grilling out front though.We hang,play and cook out back.Nothing against the ones that do.Different strokes.Just not my thing.I like my neighbors but I like my privacy when relaxing even more.

The Mayberry part is interesting to me. I read about a community being built in Amarillo a few years ago that had very limited backyard space. The idea was to encourage interaction between neighbors by not letting everyone literally hide behind their backyard fences. I do think privacy and boundaries are good, but if any of my neighbors were cooking something in the front of their house I wouldn't give it a second thought.

If I cooked out front I'd probably have to wear pants.

It would not bother me at all if the neighbors cooked out front.It is just not something I am going to do.That is their business,not mine.I like my fence and my back yard.

We don't mess around here when it comes to neighborhood BBQ, I wheel out a Shirley Fab in the driveway and set up a refrigerated prep table next to it full of good stuff to share with them.

My problems have problems...

Farkin’ addicted to cookers and couldn’t resist buying a stick burner cheaper than I could have bought for a ‘backyard’ model.

But it didn’t fit in the backyard, so I cook in the driveway and buy extra meat to feed the neighbors, sometimes...

No issues so far and with fortunate landscaping, parking the truck in the right spot and a place to tuck myself in the garage, I get a enough privacy but would still prefer the backyard.

Smoke gonna roll, front or back.

That is fine for a NEIGHBORHOOD BBQ.Ihost several cooks for large parties at the farm every year but sometimes all I want is peace and quiet and thin blue wafting into the air.Not company.

My Shirley lives in my garage. I roll it out to the driveway to cook an roll it back when done. If I am doing a big cook, I'll set up the pop-up tent. Some neighbors frown on this, others stop by and have a beer. If they don't like it they can move to a gated community with an HOA and ban it. My neighborhood is like Outback Steakhouse - "No rules, just right".

My cookers are to darn big and heavy to hook onto the truck and destroy the septic pulling them to the back yard so it all happens in the driveway "NEIGHBORHOOD BBQ" style.

Like it or not the smoke rolls, better to be accommodating than not.

At home it's all in the backyard. At the cabin the front yard/driveway. Easier to roll the cookers straight out the garage, pull out a couple lawn chairs, grab a few beers and chill out and watch the smoke roll. Heck, met quite a few of the neighbors smoking in the front that I would've never met. Shared bbq and went over to their place for drinks. Try it out, it's purdy kool. But then again I'm a social farker.

View from inside of the garage throwing back a few. It's relaxing.

I am set up in the back yard, which makes the kitchen easy access for my prep. Plus I store my grills smokers on the screened patio because the garage is full of tools, etc. The driveway has a deep angle to it so I have to block everything for "level". The neighbors dont mind because I am always sharing some of the bigger cooks.
I do like the privacy of the backyard and it faces south so most E / SE winds dont blow back into the house.
