I suppose it can be done safely with the right precautions. I just never realized that it was so common.

I'm an HVAC guy and I have had my share of fires. A 5gal bucket of water and/or a garden hose is great to have if you need it now. And checking all LP fitting and burner mounts is a good idea. If you can wet everything down, It's hot outside it cant hurt.

The pavement in my driveway is super hot after boiling, nevermind the contact points of the burner are even hotter, I personally wouldn't want to put that thing on wood without taking some kind of shielding precautions

Same here. We happened to have a few small ceramic tiles lying around, and I place one under each leg just for added protection for the deck.

We always hose down the deck at the beach house before starting the grill(s), and keep the hose nearby. We never had any problems in any case. I never brew there though. I have a concrete deck at home.

Using a charcoal grill on a deck is a cool way to get a new deck that is how i got mine. Oh and I was using a concrete backer board under it. There was a guy on the old green egg board that got a new house, and his pit was just next to the deck.

Using a charcoal grill is much different than a propane burner. Hot ashes often fall from the grill. The charcoal is flammable, wort is not. If wort spills it would put out a fire not start one.
