The holiday season is filled with many delicious traditions - and here at Colt's, one of our very favorites is a Southern New Year's dinner! As we say hello to 2021, go-to Southern BBQ flavors like pork, cornbread and more may just bring us luck in the year ahead. Read on to learn more.
Grammy's Collard Greens
One of our favorite savory sides, Grammy's Collard Greens, is delicious on any day of the year - but during New Year's, it takes on an especially meaningful flavor, as the greens are said to look like money and represent prosperity in the New Year!
You'll find that many of the legendary "lucky" New Year's foods are lucky because they look like money and remind us of a prosperous future - and the same holds true for Cornbread, whose golden color evokes imagery of gold and a glittery New Year. Whether there's some truth to the legend or not, our Cornbread makes the perfect complement to your BBQ meal - a mild, subtly sweet treat that helps soak up all of that delicious sauce and smokiness of your feast.
Sweet, saucy Pulled Pork (or just about any of our delicious pork dishes here at Colt's) serves as a delicious New Year's entree - not just because it's a flavorful crowd-pleaser, but because pork reminds us of prosperity and abundance. Enjoy Pulled Pork alongside Brisket on our hearty Burnt End Sandwich, or savor it as part of a combo dinner plate with all of your favorite sides.
In the right light, even beans can remind us of coins - or at least, that's what proponents of this lucky New Year's legend say! Enjoy BBQ Beans with your New Year's feast for a truly flavorful start to 2021.
From our Colt's family to yours, we hope you have a very happy, healthy and delicious New Year! We can't wait to keep serving up your favorite flavors in 2021 and beyond.
