Doesn't bother me at all, though I understand how it could.

I never liked the smell of meat. When my parents cook I'm usually taking a nap or I'm out, so I'm not even that used to it. At school sometimes they cook meat and the smell fills the hallway and I'll just say "eww, it smells like dead animal" to one of my friends and they'll tell me how yummy it smells. I'm really sensitive to it now and it bothers the bajeesus out of me.

I went into this shop the other week with my omni bf to buy some meat and the whole place just stank of death. I had to get out of there. I can't believe that people actually work in that environment all day. It was way worse than when we have meat cooking in the house, I think it's because they actually cut up the animals in the back.

I don't mind the smell of a BBQ, but meat cooked indoors all smoking up the kitchen with fumes and greasy-choking and gross? Oh my gosh I want to vomit on the spot. Just thinking about it right now - makes my stomach churn

Most of it doesn't bother me. The only stuff that bothers me is stuff that bothered me before going veg.

Interesting enough is the psychology of this, and I usally think about this having read how some people are grossed out about the smell of animals cooking. But for the first time tonight I was grossed out over the smell of the fish sticks that were being cooked. I use to eat more than my fair share when the were served in the past. So this is an interesting phenomenon to me, as I have tryed to be none judgemental about these smells.

Mostly it doesn't bother me, but I do find that the longer I am vegetarian the more it bugs me. Certain things are worse than others. I think someone cooking raw hamburger is one of the worst.

A sausage sizzle smell always makes me think yum... but I think it's the onion.. onion on a bbq is always the best smell. Although it usually makes me angry when I smell it, because it's people raising money for dog shelters by selling dead cows...

I really dislike the smell of meat, particularly that of cooking bacon.

Sometimes it bothers me, sometimes it doesn't. Yesterday my boss was eating a smoked pork sandwich or could smell it all around the office and that smell bothered me and another vegetarian who sits near me. But my husband sometimes cooks chicken pieces but the smell of that doesn't bother me.

Yes, yes, yes. My parents were cooking hamburgers a couple days ago, and I literally could not leave my room without gagging. My mom lit a candle for me, but I had to take it everywhere I went or I would smell it over the candle.

The smell stayed in the house all night and into the morning. The worst part was that I could smell it on my retainer (I left it in the kitchen on accident). I cleaned it before I put it back in my mouth, obviously.

The wierd thing is, though, that I work at a steak house, and I can never even smell it there. I'm pretty sure the smell of the onion rings overpower it, or something.

It depends! I can do away with quite some smells (dead bodies for instance), but sometimes the burned meat smell that lingers in the staircase upsets me.

I work at a restaurant and sometimes the smell bothers me, especially if I think about where it came from. But most of the time, I'm too busy running around to even think about it.

When I worked at In-n-out burger (before I went veg), I cooked a lot and my arms would be covered in grease *yuck*

Restaurants, at least, usually tend to have high-powered ventilation/exhaust systems that suck most of the greasy, smokey nastiness away. Not always though.

Some houses are worse than others, for ventilation in the kitchen (or people just don't turn on their kitchen fans - duh!) I've been in some kitchens that have no ventilation/exhaust fan at all; felt like I was catching instant lung cancer from how heavy the air was with smoke and cooking fumes, I don't know how people live without a fan over their stove. Blerghhh...

the smell of it gets to me too, especially bacon. Ewwww! The greasy smell gets everywhere, it reminds me of cigarette smoke. It gets in my hair, clothes, and even inside my nose!!

I cannot go down the meat aisle at the grocery store now. Seeing all of those animals laying there just gets to me!

I just had this conversation with my husband the other day. People don't want to know what their meat goes through to get to the store in those nice little clear packages, because once you know you just can't put it out of your mind, kwim?

Most of the time it doesn't bother me that much, it just doesn't smell appetizing. When my whole family is complaining over how delicious BBQ smells while someone is cooking it, I pretty much could care less because it doesn't really smell like food to me.

Tuna though, I hate. Hate hate hate the smell of tuna. It makes me want to gag.

I can't handle the smell of seafood, and the smell of dead pigs really gets to me. "Red" meats don't bother me too much unless they are really strong, and chicken smells don't bother me.

Sometimes I feel guilty that I don't hate certain smells. Bacon and grilling steaks, and to some extent fried chicken, still make my stomach growl, and I have to mentally remind myself that's NOT food I smell-- it's fear and pain and death. Most other things just smell irrelevant, and a few are downright nasty, like fish. I always hated the stink of the seafood market. The other day I passed by a dead armadillo rotting on the side of the road and it smelled remarkably like the seafood market. Go figure.

yeah I can't stand it, and I do my best not to be around it.

One of the worst was a few months ago.... just prior to my boss going veg she microwaved tuna. Now, I haven't vomited in 20 years but I almost did that day. Extreme nastiness.

I had to post in this thread just to say how jealous I am if that's true. 20 years?

The only meat smells that bother me are bacon, ham, and seafood. Beef and chicken still smell good to me, but I get weirded out when I think that, so in the end I just feel uncomfortable.
