Great Moments on the Grill: My Buddy Barry Lent


For the month of July, we asked for your photos and videos of your best grilling moments for our contest, Great Moments on the Grill. The prize? A brand new Weber grill worth $500 from Appliances Plus in Somers.

We were looking for anything funny, creative or delicious, from blizzard burgers and downpour steaks to delicious juicy platters of food. And we got them: 19 people entered 34 photos. (We didn’t get any videos, though.) So from now until the winner is announced on Aug. 25, I’ll be featuring these photos on Small Bites.

Ed Acevedo of Peekskill sent in this hilarious photo of his friend in a funny hat:

He says: “My buddie Barry Lent showing off his AWESOME grilling talent.”

Barry is probably my best friend and all around good guy.  He lives directly across the street from me in Peekskill.  I got him the hat because he is a great cook and always   “The guy” cooking at the BBQ .  So now he breaks out now then for a good laugh. I think it goes good on his head.

More funny photos of Barry, after the jump.

“Just to see him in that hat made the steaks that much better!” says Ed!
