Rated 5 out of 5Â by NewGriller Don't believe the other Reviews without Undertanding the Issues
I just got off the phone with the manufacturer and they explained to me what MAY possibly happen. There is nothing that can leach color in the mat. Most problems have to do with:
1 - items under the mat will fade/weather/stain differently then items not under the mat. It makes sense - the carpet under my couch looks very different then the carpet in the rest of my living room for the same reason.
2 - Water may get trapped under the mat. This may be fixed by letting everything dry out. I guess this is unless the water trapped may stain the deck.
3 - The majority of the issues (which there are a few of) has to do with composite material (as per the manufacturer AND reflected by the reviews of this product on multiple sites). If you are putting it on concrete or pavers this is a NON-ISSUE.
4 - There is one particular deck manufacturer that there are moisture issues with and there is something you can do to mitigate. Contact the manufacturer to make sure yours is not the one and/or what the mitigation is.
I always consider reviews when buying items but with this it was strange. Some people loved the product and then some stated it destroyed their deck. It was then I realized all of the negatives were on decks and almost all stated composite (some did not say anything about the deck material). When in doubt contact the manufacturer to understand if there are any issues and then correlate that information with the reviews and then make an educated descision

I got two of these mats to put under my big smoker. I needed these since ash and burning cinders fall out of the fire box all the time while smoking meat for 20 hours. We just built a new deck and didn't want to burn a big hole in it like the last one<G>. The mats worked perfectly and are truly fireproof. A fancy plastic mat would not have worked. I recommend these mats for serious cooks.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GrillGirl Will ALWAYS use this!
We use this mat under our Weber Genisis Grill. It keeps our pavers clean from debris and fat that inevitibaly drips around the BBQ. Our first one lasted for several years before this replacement. Pressure washing it every spring keeps it looking good. I do wish it was 6" deeper and longer.

Product is as advertised. I was very worried about my new composite decking, but this charcoal type mat just washes off. It has rained quite a bit with no marks on my deck. Price was competitive with local stores, which only sold the light brown color.
