According to the website while corn on the cob is the most searched vegetable in the country, and chicken breasts were a top search item, the number one search food for New York State is unusual.

The most-searched grilling term for New York State was "Grilled Clams"

Yes...clams were the number one food that New Yorkers searched for how to grill. Plus according to several different recipes, they are easy to grill.

Simply put the clams on the grill grate for around 8-10 minutes until they pop open. After that, transfer them to a plate, pry off the top shell and add some sauce or melted butter you are all set.
