Cops Enter Home After Woman Says The Smell Is From Cooking Brisket - She Wasn't Telling The Truth

Police were called to a Knoxville, Tennessee apartment complex when a strange smell began to permeate the air. The first thought was that someone might have been cooking up something illegal. As it turns out, what they cooked up was legal - it's just the way they went about it that was the problem.

Officers arrived at the apartment complex to find a woman was attempting to barbecue a brisket in her bathtub. The unnamed middle-aged woman thought it would be a great idea to place her barbecue racks straddled over the tub, with the meat piled on top. With such a large BBQ pit, she'd be able to cook a great deal of her prize-winning brisket all at once.

She placed pans of burning coal inside the tub, but the fiberglass basin was not built to withstand that kind of heat. The bathtub started to melt and caught fire. Smoke was everywhere.

Firefighters rushed in and at least their job was easy; they put out the fire with the shower hose. Whoever is going to have to clean up the mess of meat, mud and burnt fiberglass-- his job is not going to be easy. The downstairs neighbors, who suffered from water damage leaking into their apartment, are also going to have a bit of clean-up to do.

Thankfully, no one was killed. Hopefully the creative chef has gained a bit of common sense and won’t try to improvise again for her next party.
