Vegan takes neighbours to court over the smell of barbecued fish

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world...ing/ar-AAGJPOC

Vegan Cilla Carden from Perth, Western Australia, claims her neighbours breached residential laws by barbecuing, smoking and having noisy children.
The vegan issued a list of demands that included orders for a family living next door, as well as another neighbour, to reduce patio lighting, silence their pets and replace plants in the common garden.She also alleged that wafting smells such as cigarettes and barbecues caused "undue offence" to her.

Speaking to Nine News, Ms Carden said: "They've put the barbecue there so I smell fish - all I can smell is fish.
She should have put her head between her legs, took deep breathes and relaxed..... ohh wait she would still smell the..........

I don't think being a vegan is the issue as it sounds like everything her neighbours do annoys her.

A friend of ours in the had this. The next door neighbour started asking her to keep her kids quiet in the garden as it was disrupting their peace despite them hosting barbeques for friends and thinking it funny to throw food over her fence. They even got one of their kids to write a letter and post it through her door.

Is that in the correct order?

Shouldn't the noisy children be smoked or barbequed first?

Modern times are hard to comprehend for us oldies!

Barbequed. Smoked is too subtle and slow . They stay noisy longer.

And they're probably to young to smoke.

Actually barbecued is smoked. Barbecue is the art of slowly cooking for several hours, using low heat and wood smoke, properly done it will result in food that is incredibly tender and tasty. Originally developed during the early 1800s by blacks in the deep south US (i.e. slaves) - they found they could take cheaper, less desirable cuts of mean and turn them into mouthwatering delicacies with proper barbecue cooking. Now that proper southern BBQ has gone mainstream, you can get good BBQ many places, but for a long time the key to finding good BBQ in the US was to look for a place with an old black guy doing the cooking.
Cooking over higher (usually direct) heat is properly called 'grilling', not barbecue. The fact that backyard grilling over charcoal grills is often called "a barbecue", it's not barbecue.

They played a clip from the vegan lady in question on the local radio today. If she was my neighbor, I'd make sure I grilled or barbecued at least once a week, year around. Probably not fish - I'm not much of a fan of fish, and it's tough to properly grill fish (never tried to barbecue it), but beef, pork, and chicken, even turkey . With any luck it would bother her so much she'd move...

And imagine how many beers you can have during a good barbecue. My briskets normally take around eight hours to reach perfection, or so I'm told.
Just did a six-beer honeycured bacon barbecue session. Turned out rather nice.

Hi tdracer. Like so many things, the use of the word "barbecue" has sort of moved into more general "outdoor cooking" techniques as we know them today. However, the origin, I believe, goes back even further than you suggest - to the early 1500's when the Spanish came across it while "visiting" the Caribbean.

I believe the word "barbecue" is derived from “barbacoa". This was the word used by the Taino Indians to describe the wooden structure they used to smoke meat and fish. After a while, the Europeans started to widen the usage of the word "barbecue" to describe the cooking technique and, I guess today, we use it to encompass what you rightly describe as “barbacoa" and grilling. And you may be correct as to how it got into use within the US of A. Language moves and evolves I guess and, I for one, particularly after a few beers, am unphased by that idea. In fact, after years of traditional BBQs, I have now joined the "dark side" and use gas which, I discovered, is almost as good but 1000 times more convenient - I usually BBQ almost daily between Feb and Nov - hence the vital importance of "convenience"!

Now, having H 'n' H as a neighbour would be a real nightmare scenario for our vegan lady! What a NIMBY she is! Off to plan this evenings BBQ - with the aid of a pre-BBQ beer! Happy days!!!!!!! Cheers, H 'n' H

Two hours, warm smoked, shots of single malt between beers to extend the process.

It does indeed.

It might even develop one day to the point where "phased" and "fazed" mean the same thing.

And it seems like her efforts have had a predictable outcome.
