    Grill Mats

    I just about broke my back over the holiday weekend laying a new paver patio. It was on the wife's to do's for at least a year or so. I would hate to start staining it up with my "sloppiness." I didn't realize I was sloppy until it was kindly pointed out during the demo of our old patio. I guess I've been known to have some ash and charcoal dust collect when working with the PBC and a few grease stains when cleaning the Genesis. Anyone using a pad or mat they like? I think I am going to add an outdoor trash can to the mix, but definitely could use some ideas in this area. Thanks in advance.


    Having Laid Pavers before for myself and commercially I feel your Pain. Having just having a new Cedar Deck built and a Wife I have owned for 42 years I am going to follow your post carefully. I need to know, Dan

      It's the other way around Dan. She owns you.

    We used a section of steel before they roll it for roofing/siding. Lots of color options that way. Little slippery when wet though.


      I like the metal sheet idea, my only concern would be how hot it may get during the summer as I live in Southern CA. I did see Meathead has the original grill mat as one of the accessories that gets good reviews. It looks like it comes in a few different colors.



        Is there a sealer that could be put on the pavers' in the area of your cookers? That would not let the grease penetrate the porosity of the pavers' and make it easier to clean.


          I use this on a wood deck. No stains yet. http://www.amazon.com/The-Original-Grill-Pad-Rectangle/dp/B003KAPI5O


            Picked one of these up at Walmart for 14 bucks. http://www.lowes.com/pd_140235-18889...7&kpid=3092427


              What about bed liner? It comes in just about every color under the rainbow, and it's not slippery.


              has anyone used cement board under their grill/smoker on wooden decks?

                I use ceramic tiles under mine. They can take the heat from a hot coal or two, but will crack if there is a small pile of hot coals. If you are worried about stains, put a layer of clear plastic under the tiles and trim to size after the tiles are laid in place. And buy a few extra because they do crack if you drop anything hard on them. Don't ask me how I know...

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages
