THE FINAL SUBSCRIPTION The ‘3 Taxi Guys’: from the left Rick Hewatt, John Lazar and Jamie Campolongo. THE CHECKER CAB THAT BECAME A BBQ The Checker ‘CabaCue’ cooks whole hogs. ‘The CabaCue’, that’s the proud name of the classic 1979 Checker Marathon which drove around Atlanta and then sat in a junk yard for 20 years. It was recently given a completely new lease of life as a … barbecue and smoker. Strange? Not if you’re the ‘3 Taxi Guys’. A few years ago Rick Hewatt (Atlanta Checker Cab), Jamie Campolongo (Pittsburgh Yellow Cab) and John Lazar (Luxor Cab in San Francisco), found each other in their love of barbecuing. They went one step further and started up ‘3 Taxi Guys’, creating and supplying delicious barbecue sauces and rubs. “We also have a professional BBQ competition team”, adds Rick Hewatt. “And we now use the CabaCue to cook whole hogs in BBQ competitions all over the US. We have competed in The World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest in Memphis and in the Big Pig Jig here in Georgia, which is one of the largest and most challenging BBQ contests in the world! Obviously we are having a lot of fun with it as we compete in about 7 or 8 BBQ contests a year and have won many accolades and first place ribbons for our BBQ sauces and cooking.” And the CabaCue? Hewatt laughs: “There was a reality show on the Food Network called ‘The Shed’ here in the US about a BBQ restaurant and the owners, the Orrison Family, in Ocean Springs Mississippi. One of the episodes is called ‘Smokin Taxi’, featuring the owner Brad and myself building this taxi smoker. It also featured the ‘3 Taxi Guys’ taking delivery of the unit at a BBQ and Blues event here in Atlanta where we cooked on the CabaCue for the crowd. Pretty cool!” “My repair shop here in Atlanta completely restored the car and together we put the CabaCue in ‘3 Taxi Guys’ colours. Don’t forget to mention our web site where anyone can order our delicious products. Our saying is: “It’s Cabilicious.” wf ONE MILLION REWARD FOR AN UBER-TRIP The Seoul authorities want to make absolutely sure its ban of the Uber-app is followed to the letter and hopes to engage the help of the population. Everyone who reports an Uber-trip and proves it with a receipt, photo or video, receives a 1 million Won reward – about 800 Euro. In the Korean capital dispatching trips via the Uberapp has been banned since July 2014. jh Curious Cabbies!
