My neighbors hate me! OT

up at 6am with smoke a blazin into their windows.  I just moved in 2 months ago...im sure they are tired of my egg usage 4-5 times per week but at least normally it is in the evening.  Should I feel bad?

    No. Just invite them ever so often. You will become the hero

    NFW-matter-of-fact you will likely convert them.  Are you sure they hate you or is it envy?

  • Not sure they "hate" it but I just feel bad.  The other day I heard them close all their windows when I started...this morning im sure they were awoken by it (windows were open).  The **** thing is I have a huge yard with tons of privacy but their house just happens to be situated that all of their windows face my patio...where the egg is.

  • Early morning starts can cause the neighbours to be upset, not because it's BBQ but because for the first 20 minutes it smells like someone's house might be burning.

  • Put an extended chimney on your egg.

    Send peace offerings. I live in a townhouse so I do this often for my next door neighbors. Seems to work so far; no "For Sale" sign yet.

    Like @Mickey said, definitely invite them over sometimes or take a peace offering to them occasionally. They may be less likely to complain or get snotty if you do that.

  • I've had neighbors come check to make sure the house isn't on fire, but no one seems to mind the smell once the Egg's up and running - particularly if there's 20 pounds of pig in there and I share.

    well seeing ive been burning some old moldy carpeting in the pit lately im sure my neighbors arent complaining about me lighting the egg
    :)) i would get them over for a  dinner on your patio, maybe some late night appetizers with some beverages, always seems to help keep up the neighborhood relations

  • Well, it could be worse. At least their dog isn't crapping on your lawn.
    If the world is something you accept rather than interpret, then you're susceptible to the influence of charismatic idiots.

  • haha, actually they have a fairly yappy dog that they though bothered me but I made it clear that its a dog...they are supposed to bark.  Doesn't bother me.  Maybe these two things even themselves out. Ill offer a peace offering next time I see them!

    start throwing nibbles over the fence to the dog. No more barking and the neighbors will wonder why it's starting to mooch.
