I– BBQ Pitmaster Of Smokin’ Triggers
Johnny Trigg has been cooking barbecue, and winning, for some years now. Infact, so far he has managed to bag over $550,000 dollars in prize money as he has worked his way through a myriad of BBQ events while claiming a whole slew of titles along the way.Featured in the TV show BBQ Pitmasters that has aired over the last few weeks on TLC, Johnny has been fortunate enough to escape a great deal of anguish that the other competitors have (see the power outage that affected Lee Ann Whippens rottiserie).Alvarado born Texan, Johnny Trigg is well known for his top quality ribs, winning solid placements in events, and was named Grand Champion in the 15th annual Pork Checkoff-sponsored Great Pork BarbeQlossalTM way back in 2002.At the time, his winning team, Smokin Triggers, earned cash and prizes including the grand prize of $5,000 and a Kingfisher Kooker valued at $1,700.Things have only move onward and upward for Trigg since then, as he also won the Jack Daniel’s Championship in 2000 and 2003 and so far, has taken over 40 Grand Championships nationwide.Much like Tuffy Stone, the relatively laid-back Trigg who is often called "The Grandfather of BBQ", favors the use of a 26" offset Jamie Geer built Jambo Pit that he has used with great success since he started competing seriously over a decade ago.
