I'm shopping for some metal to make a smoke diverter, is zinc plated ok to use?

I believe that zinc plated steel is nothing

more or different than galvanized.

Probably better to keep away from it.

Yeah I think it's a form of galvanizing, which I've read should be kept away from food.

Aluminum should be fine though, right?

You can use zinc in a smoker so long as it does not come in contact with the food or where there is the possibility that fat/liquids may run off the zinc and come in contact with the food. If it is underneath the food and there is no chance of fat dripping down and splashing back up then it should be fine.... however.... if you have the ability to use aluminium instead then you should use that in preference.
