Florida man ordered by city to keep BBQ smell from leaving his property

Is it possible to contain the smell from a smokey backyard BBQ?

In Florida, one man had a run-in with an official over the scent wafting from his grill.

The video of the exchange between the homeowner, his friend, and a Pinellas county environmental specialist after a neighbor once again called to complain about the barbeque odor is making the rounds on social media.

Allegedly, that same woman has also called police to report the so-called nuisance, only to have the officers side with the homeowner.

That's when the county stepped in.

After complaint number 15, they sent out an inspector to document the "grill byproduct" and issue the homeowner a warning about somehow keeping his smoke from wafting into the street.
