Timco In-Dex Exterior Coach Screws Organic Green 8 x 100mm Pk10
Did The Job
Used these screws to join and lock together two 6"x2" cross-braces for my deck steps.
Like others have mentioned, I used a pilot drill-hole and large M10 steel washers to get a neat and robust finish (the washers came in a plastic bag within a very strong cardboard box; seems overkill).
Worked fine, without any issues as you would expect. Only thing I would say is that the price is maybe a tad higher than I think is warranted, but as I only needed one pack it was okay.

Excellent in all respects
Does what it says on the tin. Great quality. Drilled a 4mm pilot hole to fit, ensuring no splitting of the wood and a tight fitting.

Perfect for fixing trellis
These coach screws are ideal for securing a trellis to a fence post. They are strong, easy to use and are unobtrusive compared to brackets.

TIMco In-Dex exterior screw M8
For decking projects these are really good value for
building the frame , I find drilling a pilot home 5mm
helps insertion and fitting a M8/M10 flat washer so the
head does not pull in to the joists etc, and have had no problems with several projects
