Did some ribs Johnny Triggs style

WOW...these things were really sweet.  Very tender, moist and great flavor.  They were really good, just couldn't eat very many of them.  Wife loved them.  Ever bite was these are incredibly awesome!  Way to sweet for my preference. I still prefer the 2 hour turbo method.

 Just coming out of the foil stage.



Ready for the wife's taste test.

  • Excellent looking ribs. What kind of sauce do you use for finishing or is that a secret? :)
  • I've been doing ribs turbo since I read your post a while back.  By far the best way.

    I'm in revolver's camp vs.Triggs as far as BBQing 'eaters'. Trigg style results in an interesting time spent and some tasty ribs but once you get past the two or three 'turn-ins' I'd just as soon we did 'em this way. And this way is simply put 'em on rubbed at 275F for 2-1/2 - 3 hrs and serve with sauce on the side! Beats the Trigg method every thyme (don't shoot me, Johnnyyyyyyyy)!! 

    P.S. I think Johnny does them something like this, too, when he serves them to guests at home.
  • Good job!! I just figured out what im cooking tonite! Thanks formthe great pics! =D>

    When you only have a bite or two to impress the judges, you have to do something to wow them and get their attention. I saw an interview with Trigg where he admitted that he doesn't make them that way (or like them that way) if he's making them at home or for friends.

  • This brings up a good point. Many "recipes" or techniques that are used for comps might not make a great meal. You gotta remember that they are trying to impress a judge in a couple bites. I went to a "BBQ" class and the pitmaster and kept driving that point home. He actually holds a separate class form competition style.
