unless you are siphoning wrong there shouldn't be hardly any trub in your bucket. much less enough to clog the spigot. i've never had a problem with either.

I think the concern with Trub was from using a spigot in the primary. Not racking into a bottling bucket with a spigot.

This is exactly what I do. Put your primary (or secondary) on the kitchen counter for a couple hours while you get your bottles sanitized and your priming solution prepared. That will give any stirred up sediment time to settle back out. Just be careful when you siphon/rack your beer into your bottling bucket and you should leave behind the vast majority of the sediment. I also got a drilled rubber stopper that fits the inside of my bottling bucket spigot and stuck a nylon barbed elbow into it. It does reduce the flow a bit, but it also gets every last bit of my wort out of my bottling bucket!

That's how I roll. The bottle filler is a must.
