My previous house was a composite deck. Used charcoal on it often. At the time I only had a OTG. I was concerned but never had any issues. I alway kept the hose close, tried to avoid windy days, placed my chimney on a 12x12 paver after I dumped it, emptied the ash bucket often. I would only use a grill with the ash bucket.
