    The Fort Worth man who competed in one of the biggest food contests in the state is back home this week. What happened in Terlingua is Monday's Tell Me Something Good.

    Chad Herman took his skills to the legendary Terlingua International Chili Championship. It's been going on for 52 years.

    It also includes a barbecue competition. That's where Herman, a vegan for health reasons, put his talent of cooking meat to the test.

    Herman and his Backwoods Smoker team came home with second place for his chicken. "Everything, I'm told, was amazing. It just wasn't what the judges were looking for this year," Herman said.
