Smoked Corned Beef At Kloby's Smokehouse

Smoked corned beef at Kloby's
Seasonal treat -- smoked corned beef at Kloby's Smokehouse on Johns Hopkins Road.

Some friends went to Kloby's last night to watch some basketball.  We snacked on the St. Patrick's Day special -- smoked corned beef.  They buy the pink beef, then smoke it in the "pit" with their wings, brisket, etc.

That's fun.  It's lean and thick-sliced.  Some pieces are salty, but they have a great smoked flavor and an outer crust that shows that you're eating something made special.

They only have the corned beef through Sunday.  I'd actually recommend just ordering the beef and sides.  We had one sandwich, but the roll doesn't add much.  Order a half pound or a pound of beef.  Get some cabbage or some fries.  Snack on slices as you watch the NCAA tournament -- and maybe try some of the beers, including the nitrogen-infused specials that they're serving up.

Kloby's is on Johns Hopkins Road just west of Rte 29.  It's a shopping center with Facci, Tandoor Grill and other restaurants.  The post office says that's Laurel, but it isn't.  I have had a political position against the description.  Now I want to push Steve's brilliant suggestion:  Tribeco.  It's a triangle below Columbia.

We will be there on Saturday to try out their smoked corned beef. Kloby's has become one of our favorites. They are also opening at 8am on St. Patrick's Day for breakfast!

"Smoked corned beef" is basically how you make pastrami.

@Morty -- LOL. That's exactly the conversation that we had last night as we ate. We agreed that it makes pastrami more interesting, on average, than corned beef.
