It's similar to the act of clearing your throat while playing. Another way to envision it is trying to imitate a cow mooing. There are variations and nuances, you'll just have to experiment. There's also flutter tonguing, which gives a different "razz" kind of sound - you essentially do a rolling R's motion with the tongue.

Subject: [Dixielandjazz] A Different Trumpet Question

Can anyone explain to me how to make the growl sound on a trumpet?

Believe it or not, 40 years on trombone, and I never had a call for a
growling trombone. (All right you wise guys, never mind!) Now the trumpet is
supposed to growl in a part I'm trying to learn.
