What precautions would you take to put your BBQ there? Trust me, people have BBQ'ed on wooden decks- at least once.

If you're worried about it, I second this notion. $11 for a 3'x5' piece of concrete board to put under the burner sounds well worth it for the peace of mind.

well, I did 2 batches back to back this weekend, and there were no heat issues under the burner. Of course the second i get everything set up to start boiling the wort the landlord walks by, and got freaked out when he thought it was a pot full of oil for deep frying. He gave me a sideways look when I told him i was brewing, so I gave him a beer and it was smooth sailing since then.

and good god, it goes so much quicker on the burner then it ever did on my old gas stove.

Odds are it is against the apt. rules but who really cares? :-)

I second the fire extinguisher. You should have at least one in the kitchen anyways!

The deck will most likely suffer no damage.

Your analogy isn't that great though. The burners for a propane burner are a LOT closer to the wood than those on a gas grill. If the grill is going to damage the wood, it's likely stains coming from grease dripping from either a full, misaligned or missing grease trap.

Tim Allen clone? So, you're woefully unfunny; you like to grunt like an ape in an attempt to get laughs, but you just come off looking like a comically inept retard; you think it's clever to attach a V-8 to everything you see, in yet another attempt to get cheap laughs, but instead, it just makes everyone want to change the channel because it's the same lame gag all over again. And when it all fails, you resort to making hideously awful motion pictures.

Or did you just mean "accident-prone"?

I don't think you would be in any danger, but like some have said in this thread, yourl landlord might have some policy against it. Best to check into it first.

Also some state/city/county ordinances may have something prohibiting this. A buddy of mine moved into an apartment in Waukesha, WI and the landlord stated that there is a state ordinance against grilling on a wooden deck. Then again, that was 10 years ago, so things may be different now.

I'd keep a fire extinguisher handy and keep an eye on it but I think you will be just fine.

You know, if the landlord walks by, takes a beer, and keeps walking without making you take down the setup, I'd say there;s no need to worry.

comically inept? probably
retard? ...only after too much homebrew

clever, no...fun, yes!

no, all of my movies feature only the best 70's funk soundtracks, and I, too, think plots are over-rated

that and "more power" kinda embodies my projects...
