Florida Environmentalist Outlaw BBQ Smoke
It is one of the best smells of summer, smelling neighborhood barbecues. Apparently, in Florida, it is illegal for the smell of your back yard BBQ to leave your yard. See video footage of a county environmentalist explain of complaints coming from neighbors, that the BBQ smoke is ruining her summer.
According to Fox News
Scotty Jordan uploaded a video on July 22 2015 to Facebook that he says shows Pinellas County environmental specialist Joe Graham issuing a warning to Jordan and a friend for violating the county’s air quality law. The video, which has been watched over four million times, shows Graham telling Jordan that there's too much smoke emanating from Jordan's commercial-grade grill.
“I just took three pictures of smoke,” Graham explains. “I can smell it again right now. You’re allowed to have it smell on your property, so that doesn’t count, but when I’m on the street, that’s when it counts.”
