With the weather being as great as it is, Americans nationwide are gearing up for epic barbecues and cookouts. Each state has its own barbecue favorites, but here in Idaho, we've made our preference loud and clear...

While other states might choose seafood, corn on the cob, or portobello mushrooms, Idaho stays true to its meat-loving roots. And while chicken breasts, ribs, and shrimp caught the attention of many others, our hearts (and stomachs) remain devoted to that perfectly grilled slab of beef.

Whether it's ribeye, sirloin, or tenderloin, Idahoans know how to season and sear their steaks to absolute perfection. And if they don't, they can always Google it to figure it out! So, fire up those barbecues, gather your loved ones, and sink your teeth into a delicious steak.
