From those of us in the Memphis (Tri-State area), Wayne Lohman gets two thumbs up. From a rep standpoint, he is the best out there (IMHO). He and his wife are at most every contest in this area and will always take time to talk with all of the teams to ensure everyone has what they need and act as a soundboard/laison when things aren't in line. From a business standpoint, I believe he listens to the cooks and acts within the boundaries of the rules. He is fair and consistant....plus he is a geniunely nice guy. Again, just my $0.02 worth.
