Salt potatoes for Syracuse, too!

More NY ones: Italian sausage sandwiches, chicken riggies, apples, Riesling and icewines!

When it comes to BBQ, three states come to mind:
Texas - for the beef/brisket
South Carolina - pork based BBQ
Tennessee - killer ribs

New York and Illinois (mainly chicago) are both known for the pizza, but I am partial to New York style. Both are also known for different hot dogs. In that situation, I am partial to Chicago style.

Wisconsin is known for brats, beer, and cheese.

Louisiana makes some amazing cajun food.

If it's soul food, it has to be Mississippi.

Kentucky is known for fried chicken

And then we have Florida. In florida, of you don't have a Dole Whip, you have really missed out

ME- Lobster

NC- BBQ
Wow, the main food I think of in New York is street vendors selling hot dogs and pretzels. Pizza to me is a Chicago tradition, and out here in California its a staple too.....a lot of different styles, Chicago, Authentic Italian, but no New York Style.

Maryland lobster, I can see.

I couldn't say about North Carolina, but looking up the tourist guides it talks about livermush made from pigs and fried chicken, no mention of BBQ.

I guess sausage sandwich would be NJ, too, but no one would ever order an Italian sausage sandwich - just sausage sandwich (Italian sausage, onions, and peppers).

Florida: key lime pie. You can even get a frozen slice of it, on a stick, dipped in chocolate.

Alaska: salmon (king/chinook, red/sockeye, or silver/coho), halibut, king crab, reindeer sausage, birch syrup, jellies made with wild berries (high bush cranberry, blueberries, and currants), and smoked salmon. For non-tourists or people who are visiting friends, add moose, caribou, and bear.

Amen! Green chile goes in anything in New Mexico and that's the way I like it. Most things I'm able to recreate but I really, really miss green chile chip dip. I'm ashamed to admit that last time I was there, I ate a container of it every day. I also think of fry bread and Navajo tacos and sopapillas.

When I lived away from Michigan, I missed apple cider and paczkes.
