In the NW we don't have to worry to much about the frost line either. I've done the trick of the concrete and the pier w/bracket...can't get away with deck blocks with out a bracket.

If I'm in a hurry, I'll build my deck by setting temporary piers under my beams, run my joists and blocks and then pour the pier and set the bracket or nail my pier blocks to the beam and then pour concerte under it and go home....Come back the next day remove the temps and lay decking. Mind you this only works 1st story decks, that are not real elaborate.
