Last week I stopped by the King of Prussia Shake Shack. I ordered a smoke shack and a chicken shack. I started with the chicken shack and bounced to the smoke shack. I went back and forth. When I was halfway through both sandwiches I realized I wanted them as one. The union on my tray sparked the connection in my mind. I needed to eat a cheese burger topped with fried chicken.
Today, after rolling doughnuts, I popped into the kitchen at Charcoal BYOB. I shared my my chicken-burger experience and ensuing want. Thankfully Mark was game to bring the burger to life. He topped their signature CVaped cheeseburger with a piece of their fried chicken. He added Firehouse pickles and their french fry sauce.
We quartered up the creation and quietly ate. It was worth the wait. We crushed the first of many fried chicken cheeseburgers I'll be eating.
