I put a few pavers under my burner.

I keep the area under my burner wet, any heat that makes it to ground level evaporates water, doesn't burn wood. Just make sure the water doesn't spread far enough to become a slipping hazard.

I would like to brew on my deck, because it's closer to the door, but because my deck faces a road, the fire department, who patrol the area fairly regularly, would issue all sorts of tickets if I were to even think of doing it. Nope.

We're buying a house right now with very large 15x30 deck off of the kitchen/dining room. I feel like I should convert to deck brewing just for convenience, keep moisture in the house down, and to just be outside in the few months that aren't death winter up here.

Thanks for the info, all.

I used to use a piece of cement board under my burner. Now I have a silicone mat. Both deflect the heat well.

My deck faces the road too but I don't think I'd have to worry about the fire dept since I spent 6 years as chief of that department. You might drop by the firehouse and ask about it before you make too many assumptions. There may not be any problem, especially if you give them a heads-up on what you are doing.

As long as the propane burner doesn't tip over I'd be more worried about splashing wort on the deck than scorching or burning.

I'm in a similar situation. I just bought my house in December and it has a large 18'x18' deck off the kitchen that's completely covered so it'll make for a nice outside living/brewing area in the warmer months. I'm actually planning to build a bar on my deck eventually.

As long as your burner has a heat shield under it there should be no problems. Mine is a turkey fryer with a simple sheet metal heat shield and directly under the burner is where my cat likes to nap!
