I don't really have any space to setup the wsm other than the deck so what are some solutions? Definitely don't want to burn the house down.
I don't smoke on my wooden deck, but I've taken my IR temp gun to all sides of my WSM. Even directly underneath you're not usually much over 100F. I've put it very close to an old hot tub, and the temp never gets very high there either.

I don't think I'd hesitate to do so. Maybe you'd get an errant coal when dumping from the chimney or something. My summer smokin' flip-flops have some melted spots underneath from stepping on them
