The 2-2-4 may be OK to use depending a few factors.
The main one being what code cycle is your area under?

And, if you can use the 3 wire feeder, you will connect the wires exactly like the main panel that feeds it. Including the ground rod.
If you use this 3 wire feeder you cannot have any other metallic paths to the structure. Phone lines, water lines etc.... will be off limits to the detached structure.
