I've got a new gas line run up to my deck for a barbeque grill. The pipe rises about 2' above the deck and is 2" from the wall. I need/want to anchor the top of this pipe, but have been debating the best method to do it. I've thought about a galvanized cast pipe hanger, or a board and clamp but neither one seems great (the siding is vertical shiplap that I can screw something to). I want the inspector to be happy, and to make it strong. There was too much going on in the wall to run it up through there.
I could put in a shorter pipe, but I was thinking it would be so much easier to reach the shutoff if it was up a ways and would keep the shutoff out of the snow in the winter. What would you do in this instance?

I'm sure other folks will have different ideas, but I'd use a "sammy" anchor into the wood, a short piece of 3/8" all thread rod, 3/8" nuts and a split ring hanger. After the inspection I'd paint it all to prevent rust. Provides a rigid support for the pipe.
