The riverside diner is hosting a summer(-ish) barbie on the deck over four weekends.

Summer may be over, but the folks at Arbory are keeping things hot and smoking.

Over four Saturdays, three chefs are coming together to cook up a fiery storm on the bar's Yoder Smoker Charcoal BBQ on the eastern deck.

Arbory executive chef Nick Bennett and head chef James Gibson have invited ex-Rice Paper Scissors head chef Ross Magnaye to help whip up three barbequed dishes.

There's Filipino pork, atchara (pickled papaya) and dirty rice; sticky pork jowl with collard greens in a roll; and Mayura Station wagyu with smoked fat, black garlic and pickled lovage. Plus, DJs on deck each afternoon.

The BBQ Smokedown runs on March 20, 27, April 3 and 10. $25 gets you one of the three dishes plus a tinny from Pirate Life Brewery.

From 12pm to 3pm.
