Could this be our last summer of balcony barbecues?  It’s certainly shaping that way in NSW with legislation on the way that makes it a lot easier for apartment residents to get rid of the smoky, smelly and potentially cancer-causing cook-outs that have become commonplace on many unit block balconies.

For some, barbecue bans would be truly un-Australian and make many reconsider if apartment living was for them. But for others, it’s a long-overdue curb on a selfish practice that doesn’t belong on high rise balconies and is just as intrusive and a lot more harmful than loud music.

So here are seven good reasons to ditch the one part of our lifestyle that belongs in backyards and nowhere else. And here’s a compilation of some epic  barbecue “fails” from around the world. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNcni0swoVA

Peace and love. Your neighbours will stop hating you. You have people above and around you who will be forced to breathe in any smoke and stink you create, if they have their windows or doors open when you fire up the barbie. If you are one of those lazy slobs who “cleans” the barbie by burning off last week’s fat, you will probably be forced to get rid of it anyway.
