Firefighter barbecue throwdown with a message

Eight fire departments from across Nassau County and Nassau medics fired up their grills July 9, 2014, to see who rules the table with the best barbecue. The food fun that came with a message to Long Island grillers to stay safe was sponsored by the Nassau Firefighters Museum and Fairway Market. (Credit: Newsday / Jessica Rotkiewicz)
