Arbory’s Saturday BBQ Smokedown

Saturday’s are heating up with Nick Bennett, Ross Magnaye and James Gibson taking over the deck at Arbory Bar & Eatery.

Holy smokes it’s getting hot on deck! Kicking off this Saturday, Melbourne’s iconic riverside bar and restaurant Arbory Bar & Eatery will be hosting the first ‘BBQ Smokedown’ event, with three of the city’s favourite chefs coming together to cook up a storm on Arbory’s Yoder Smoker Charcoal BBQ.

Running every Saturday for the next four weeks, Arbory Executive Chef Nick Bennett and Head Chef James Gibson are joining forces with Rice Paper Scissors’ Ross Magnaye to deliver three smokin’ dishes.

Think Filipino pork with pickled achara and dirty rice from Ross Magnaye, barbecue sticky pork jowl with collard greens roll from James Gibson and Mayura Station Wagyu with smoked fat, black garlic and pickled lovage from Nick Bennett.

Guests can catch the trio in the flesh when things kick off this Saturday, 20 March from 12pm–3pm on the eastern deck at Arbory. Those who can’t make the first week can still indulge in the limited-edition BBQ Smokedown menu, which will be on offer from 12pm until sold out on Saturday, 27 March and Saturday, 3 & 10 April.

Tickets are $25 a pop and will score you the BBQ offering from all three chefs, and a tinny from the Pirate Life Brewery crew. With DJs on deck each afternoon for the smokedown, they’ll be no better spot to relish in the autumn air. Run, don’t walk because tickets are limited. Secure your spot for the BBQ Smokedown here.
