The SmokeStack is a Shake Shack original cheeseburger topped with crispy applewood-smoked bacon, chopped cherry pepper, and the legendary ShakeSauce. The burger had previously only been offered as a special, but upon carnivorous fans’ requests, it has just been added as a full-time item. Shake Shacks across the country will offer the $6.25 SmokeStack, with the sorry exception of ballparks, stadiums, and international locations.
