    Koco's Pub - Best crab cakes in Baltimore

    My exe's family is from Baltimore. I have had (Baltimore Lump-style) crab cakes at 4-5 places in Baltimore, all of them family favorites. All were great, but Koco's is the best.

    98% crab meat with just enough other ingredients to hold it together! Not sure where they source their crab, but surely that's part of the secret.

    Five stars, highly recommended.

    PS - if you are into excellent fresh roasted coffee, plan on stopping at at Zekes coffee for beans on your way to or from Kocos:

      I agree that Koco’s is Top 5 easily, maybe even top 2, but there is something about the experience of eating a CC at Faidleys in Lexington Market that always edges it out for me.

        Oh, that! Lexington Market. I have driven buy it hundreds of times and wondered about the place (always figured it might be similar to Cleveland's West Side Market but with a B'more flavor. Now I have an excuse to go there, look around, eat some crab cakes, and go on my way. Any BBQ Joints there? Thanks again.

        Your BBQ options are really limited in the city. Expanding outward from downtown, I'd say your options to consider are:

        Blue Pit in Hampden (not traditional, but some solid options)

        Andy Nelsons in Cockysville (people swear by it, though they aren't my favorite)

        Heritage Smokehouse (The new guy. He cooks on 500-Gallon Primative Pits and knows his stuff)

        Woodrow's in Mt Washington (More Texas style, my favorite currently)

        Up in Smoke (Only open on Friday and Saturday, pits in parking lots)

      Gotta love Faidley's. G&M is pretty good too if you don't want to go into downtown.

        Many many years ago I was in Baltimore for work and we ate at a place that had picnic tables with butcher paper on them in a big room with coolers around the walls holding seafood. There was a small area in the back where a guy would cook up any seafood you picked out of the coolers. We sat in there for hours eating seafood and drinking beer. I don't remember the name of the place though. Does this sound familiar to any of you guys from Baltimore? This had to be 30 years ago.

          It doesn’t, but I would love to go there if you ever remember the name!

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
