    Wow, that must have been there awhile to burn through and also burning the floor joist. Glad that was all that happened.

    2nd that. I placed a composite deck protector under mine, and then 1-inch cement pavers. They extend out about a foot or so from the PBC, which gives me a good place to set the chimney starter after pouring the hot coals.

    Having the PBC raised up a couple of inches makes a big difference.

    Mine is on 3 thick pavers sitting on a concrete grill pad.

    Wow, SmokinBeeBBQ, you must have gotten that PBC smoking hot! I measured the temps under my PBC for the first few cooks that I did, and it never got hotter than about 200 deg F as I recall. I moved my PBC from the concrete terrace to the Trex deck in the Fall and set up a sandwich of 3 grill pads: two flexible fiber cement grill pads with a felted splatter mat in between. With those three pads I feel pretty secure that the deck won't heat up or discolor even during long cooks.

    This is sort of like when you lose a computer document that you're working on and someone brightly says "didn't you back it up?" If you had, you wouldn't be moaning and groaning about losing it. So I realize that by telling you I use a 3-grillmat sandwich of protection under my PBC doesn't do a thing to help you with that hole in your deck. You must have been shocked when you first discovered it. I hope the repair isn't too big a pain.

    Do you use the cement board on a wood or composite deck?

    Mine hasn't, but I put a bit of sealer on it. The upright windbreaks I painted to match the house, but I have some leaned up on a shed thats been exposed to the rain, snow, and ice and is still intact.

    I showed my wife that picture and she freaked out... thankful that our patio is concrete.

    I am curious about what Noah would say about that *shrug*
