BBQ Mat that won't remove/damage Kool Deck

I just had some concrete replaced, and new Kool Deck applied (2,200 sqft), and I need to find a mat for my grills and smokers to protect it from drippings, but one that won’t remove the Kool Deck it's sitting on. My last one did just that, drippings probably would have been better.

Anyone have a suggestion for such a mat or covering?

Thanks in advance!

I’ve never had any luck with those mats. They either leave marks on decking, or they discolor concrete.
You can use any mat you like, as long as you take it up when you’re done cooking. :cheers:
