A Charcoal Grill Mat is a Smart Addition to your Grilling Arsenal


A charcoal grill mat is an important and necessary addition to your grilling arsenal especially if you use your charcoal grill on a wooden deck. I have a number of Weber grills and a Brinkmann Trailmaster Offset Smoker that I use on my wooden deck.

A while back I wrote the article Can I use my Charcoal Grill on a Wooden Deck? since it emanated from a question from one of my readers. Well, since then, it has clearly become one of the most popular articles on this website. It tells me that people are very concerned about the prospect of using a charcoal grill on a wooden deck.

Well, within that article, I detail a number of safety tips that you should take while using a charcoal grill on a wooden deck. One of those tips is to make use of a charcoal grill mat which I certainly have done with my Grill & Garage Protective Mat. You can check out a youTube video I have created for it below to give you a first-hand look at this important grilling accessory.

If you also grill on a wooden deck or you just want to protect the area beneath your charcoal grill, this charcoal grill mat is the one I bought for my Weber charcoal grill. It’s easy to set up if you don’t want it to be a permanent fixture under your grill. But it looks so good you just might want to keep it on your deck at all times.

  1. Hi Bob,

    Great pics and video! I just got a big charcoal grill, and have been worried about some of the sparks when lighting it on my wooden deck. I think I will try your two mat approach!
