Map assigns each state a meat

(KFVS) -

It's no secret Americans love meat.

Arguably, each state has a meat that it's known for and slate.com has put together a map that assigns each state in America a meat based on an overall look at state history and practices.

They range from perhaps predictable (pork spare ribs for Missouri) to odd (gelatin for Utah) and the map itself has been grabbing a lot of attention online.

Click here to look at the full map and learn the reason why each state got the meat they did.
