post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is it Ok to use galvanized pipe to make a pipe burner? If not is it OK to us Black pipe with galvanized end caps. Or is using galvanize pipe a no no, no matter what. The burner is to run the length of a horizontal grill. Thank you for your thoughtful replies.

black iron would be ok and you can burn the galv off the end caps w/ a torch.

 i wouldn't use galv pipe for the burner.

best to avoid the galvanized if you can, you can burn the galv off the caps like eman suggested if you have to use them. I would be more tempted to just find a couple black steel caps, they cant be too expensive. Good luck!

If you decide to burn them off make sure to get a fan to blow the smoke and fumes aways from ya! thumb1.gif

I recommend  NOT  using any galvanized in a smoker. Even burned off you run the chance of getting an off taste.

I wouldn't use anything galvanized either. It is not worth the risk of getting sick or even dying.
