(WBIR, Knoxville) - A local barbecue restaurant opened doors to a new Powell location Monday morning.

County officials joined the owner of Archer's BBQ to cut the ribbon on the third location for the local chain.

Archer's BBQ already has locations in the Karns and Bearden areas, and owner Archer Bagley says he plans to open more next year.

The newest location is on Central Avenue Pike.

"I grew up in Memphis, so it's all Memphis style. It's slow cooked, it's all hickory-smoked barbecue. Everything we make, we make from scratch, all of our meats, all of our sides, all of our sauces they're all gluten free, they're all MSG free. Like I said, we make them all ourselves," said Bagley.

The new Powell location will be giving away free barbecue sandwiches until 5:00 Monday.
