When it comes to cooking out, the state of Illinois much rather have hamburgers over hot dogs.

I went to a party on the 4th of July and there was a simple choice for dinner.

Hamburger or hot dog? I went hamburger.

Apparently, most of Illinois agrees with my selection.

According to thrillist.com,

"Thanks to some intrepid research from one of the country's biggest grocery stores, we can settle once and for all just who's on team hot dog and who's on team hamburger around the country."

"Walmart pulls back the curtain on just how our collective preferences pan out, mapping which states prefer hot dogs over hamburgers and vice versa using sales data from its stores around the country."

Here are the results from KVUE Twitter feed.

Illinois is on Team Hamburger.

Even with the "Windy City" influence of the "Chicago Style Hot Dog," burgers are the champion.

I couldn't agree more.

In fact, most of America is on the same page.

"Burgers won out over dogs in a whopping 41 states."

That's good to know. Especially, if you are going to have people over in the near future.

What do you prefer?
