Summer is the season of bathing suits, beaches and, obviously, serious barbecue. And where to get your best barbecue recipes? Pinterest, of course.

Tastes in the US can vary state-to-state, so the social network has broken down the most popular barbecue recipe pins in each. Chicken is big this year, but if you’re not a fan of the fowl, there is no shortage of bacon, beef, and even *gasp* vegetarian options.
