Rinehart Family Lowcountry Boil
Bear and Bo Rinehart of NEEDTOBREATHE grew up in rural South Carolina and for them, Christmas dinner was a little bit different. “Bo and I have one of the weirdest southern traditions, I don’t know how it started, my dad is a little bit insane, but it was always crab legs for Christmas,” Bear Rinehart told Southern Living. Little brother Bo added, “He’s an outsider so like everyone else is doing hams and turkeys and we’re doing crab legs.” Now that the brothers are grown up, with families of their own, the tradition has shifted a little bit. You still won’t find a turkey on their Christmas table, but instead of the crab legs, the Rineharts celebrate the season with a full Lowcountry boil. Bear’s wife Mary Reames Rinehart how she prepares this feast for the whole Rinehart crew. Try something different this Christmas.
