These are the most uniquely searched grilling recipes by state 🍖

From filet mignon to corn on the cob, Internet search data shows standout grilling recipes by state.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Google search data shows the most unique meals being grilled in each state for the Fourth of July weekend.

From steak in the west, to seafood in the east, the data from Google Trends show the most unique searches by state. Or in other words, the data is normalized to remove shared interests across the country and intended to show recipes disproportionately searched in that state, a Google spokesperson confirmed.

Some results are for meat-lovers, such as Tri Tip in California, Nevada, and Oregon. Some results are for seafood-lovers, such as North Carolina's Mahi Mahi, Virginia's Tuna Steaks, or Florida's Grouper. And some results are for veggie lovers, like the 12 states seeming stretched across the central part of the country with a love for corn or other vegetables. 

Some states, like South Carolina, Idaho and West Virginia, are allegedly looking to perfect their hamburgers.

Here are Google's full list of the uniquely searched 'how to grill' by state

We've learned that these items are beloved when it comes to the grills in your state, but that love was not equally applied to Unicode.
