Built in 2017, the Butcher Paper trailer was an iconic lunch stop for BBQ fans in Opelika & Auburn.  We would park her next to a busy intersection and start selling our BBQ and sides.

The trailer is still available to be booked for events in the area. If you're interested in booking the trailer for your next event, fill out the form below, and we will get back with you.

About The Shop

Butcher Paper BBQ began in 2015 with a passion for traditional wood smoked BBQ and a borrowed smoker. Owner Mark Coxwell would spend his free time perfecting his rubs, sauces, and techniques cooking for friends and events around his hometown of Opelika, AL.  Soon after, he began working on building his own smoker out of propane tanks. With materials gathered, and basic tools, he built his first smoker (named Riker) during the summer of 2016. With continued exposure to the local community at concerts and events, Butcher Paper expanded to a mobile food unit (a trailer built by Mark as well) in 2017. By January 2018, Butcher Paper was beginning to make a name for itself not only in the food truck scene, but also in the local BBQ scene, and plans were made to open a brick and mortar restaurant.

Butcher Paper BBQ opened on September 7, 2018, at 128 Columbus Parkway in Opelika, AL. Featuring brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken, and all homemade sides including their smoked mac and cheese, Butcher Paper continues to grow in its popularity and offerings. We offer both dine-in and takeout as well as delivery through the Waitr app. We also offer catering for any size group or event, and you can even have us bring the trailer out to your event!

A second smoker (named LaForge) was finished in the spring of 2019, allowing us to expand our capacity even further. We can be reached at 334-748-9008 with any questions, or to place an order to pick up. For catering inquiries, we can be reached at catering@butcherpaperbbq.com, and questions regarding the trailer can be directed to contact@butcherpaperbbq.com.
