It is holiday cooking time or smoking time that is! Men’s Fellowship at New Philadelphia Moravian will be smoking pork tenderloin, boneless turkey breasts, beef tenderloins, and smoked meat loafs on  Wednesday, December 22 for Christmas. 

All proceeds are directed to the Simmons-Dula Fund for Laurel Ridge. This fund supports maintenance projects for the Laurels Lodge and four cabins and purchasing additional equipment for the tractor.

The pork tenderloins are $18.00 each and like those you find in Harris Teeter that range in size (uncooked) 1 to 1-1/4 pounds. Our pork tenderloins are seasoned with a spicy rub and smoked more or less for two hours!

The 3-pound boneless turkey breast is seasoned with a rosemary garlic-based rub and smoked more or less four to five hours and priced at $20.00 each.

Beef tenderloins range in size from 2 to 3.5 pounds and are $30.00 per pound so they range in price from $60 – $105. Each beef tenderloin is weighed and priced after it is smoked and packaged. The beef is cooked to an internal temperature of 120 degrees (rare) so you may reheat to desired doneness.

At a cost $20.00 each smoked meat loafs are here to stay. Reheating directions will be included with your order. For more information contact: Joey Transou, 336-971-7804. Your order will be available in the Pavilion.

Christmas orders must be placed by Sunday, December 12 for pickup on Wednesday, December 22 from 3:00 – 6:00 PM in the pavilion.
