I meant some styles of Brinkmann's smokers are safe on wood decks, and some
are not. I have a Brinkmann's smoker that is very unlikely to cause a fire
on a wood deck. The other people who have said it is safe presumably are
referring to smokers that differ from Greg Park's. Obviously, some smokers
would be very dangerous to use on a wood deck.

Frankly, I think it's a good idea to shield your deck from the smoker when
its in use, regardless of the type. I'd also keep a close eye on a burning
smoker, no matter what kind or where it is.
