Default Johnny Trigg Ribs

After seeing Photo Kirk's picture of the Godfather of BBQ's ribs at HLS&R, I'm thinkin
I might want to "try" to make some. Some questions I have...
Any idea what wood Johnny uses to smoke em on.
I've seen varying reports on what rub he uses (Williams rib tickler ....my apologies to Bill for mentioning another companies rub) Does anyone know what TexBBQ rub product would have a similar favor profile, or where...I can get that rub?
(Just for this experiment....) In the wrapping stage I've seen a layer of Parkay, Brown sugar, Honey, Tiger sauce, and ....(Onion/Garlic powder?) on both sides of the ribs.
There are reports of a glaze in the firming up stage, but, I've never heard a mention of a recipe. Am I close on any of these thoughts....?
Now, if I'm crossimg any BBQ line of honor by asking for secret recipe....tell me.

I'm still learnin.....

I cannot speak for Johnny, but sure know a few that did. One even went on TV ya know.

In a nut shell if you are doing a variation of the 3-2-1 you are on a close track. In the foil stage... I hear you can do good with the Parkay squeeze, honey, brown sugar, a little dash of more rub (Texas BBQ Rub Champion would be my ringer)... lay the meat side right in that then do the same on top.

May not be the exact dance, but it will get you to the ball.

I like to add some of Craig's Rib Candy to the party... better than that green top rooster sauce in my taste bud's opinion.

I think all the general ingredients are listed here, don't know about the glaze though. I think some rib candy would go very well here. I remember in Pitmasters he mentions he looks for ribs with lots of fat, which makes sense if you are going to foil them meat side down. All that fat just renders out and mixes with the other ingredients for some good tasting ribs.

Well only thing I know about Trigg is he uses a bunch of half pans and he nearly whupped me one day when the Rotty peed on his firewood at Hoots one time..Or he claimed the pooch jurinated on every thing he owned. Bound to be a little embellishment on that deal. How can a Rotty pee on everything a person owns?

Also I agree the Grand Champion rub is great on poke ribs, better than rib tickler imo although thats not bad, we all used it at one time or another when were beginners, lol.

Well, I don't know how big that dog is or how much stuff Trigg owns, but all that is the key to the solution.

Maybe Mrs. Trigg owns everything but his firewood? Could happen.
