Fire Proof Mat

edited 3:29AM in EggHead Forum
I remember seeing reference some time ago to a fire proof mat (from Lowe's I believe). Just refinished my deck and want to keep it from getting messed up under BGE. Anyone know the specifics??

    <p />Char Dawg,[p]Fireball's got ya covered. Here's the pic. It's thin "flexible" concrete and has already save me some deck damage.[p]K~G

    could this thing be used under my egg to keep my table from burning? would i still have to use a patio stone?

    KennyG, A word of caution, if used on a cedar or redwood deck the concrete base material in the matt will leave a dark stain on the wood. As per another posters experience and it makes sense.
    Otherwise, a great fire protector. I have a upcoming new innovation that should cure that possibility forever for the BGE cookers..I wonder if BGE would smile :-)

    Can that mat be cut to fit my table?

    Shelby,[p]I believe it could. Perhaps using a hack saw or rod saw in a hack saw frame.[p]K~G

    I cut the matt I have to size to fit my table. I used a saber saw with a cermic cutting blade. Go for it.
