Someone in another thread said it works well but their Weber got destroyed/fell apart (maybe from creosote wrecking the burners/metal?). Has this happened to anyone else? A once off or a potential problem?
Smoking in a propane grill safe?

I have smoked in propane grills for many many years. Started off with foil and chips, moved up to a smoker box with chunks and have tried various tubes and such. Honestly, on the propane grill I liked the box and chunks best. I never had any issues with creosote or grill damage but it's not hard to imagine someone could create problems. I see my neighbor out in the yard trying to smoke on his grill and it is billowing white, sometimes black smoke. I've talked to him and he believes the more white smoke the better, claims it makes the food smokier and he likes that. Everyone's tastes vary so not my place to judge, but to answer your question, I think once off, well more than once with all the grills out there, but done properly, no issues.
By safety I mean "safely not destroy your kill".
