Default Zinc Plated Steel

To use or not to use...that it the question.

Does anyone see any reason that zinc plated steel is bad for a smoker? I want to help someone make a baffle for their bandera and I found a good piece of this stuff laying around. Thanks for the help.

Do NOT use! It's galvanized metal which is not healthy to use

chuck the galvanized.

Home depot:

For 8 dollars. A stainless steel mud tray used for holding joint compound. 16x16.

or for 14 dollars, a stainless steel kick panel for a door, not as thick as the mud tray.

22 dollars, Bed bath and Beyond. Stainless steel cookie sheet/baking sheet.

Free(or close).. 18x8 inch peice of Scrap at your local welders.

even cheaper, heavy gauge aluminum sheet 36x36, but the steel will last longer.

Sort of related to the topic.
I did the wally world cookie sheet mod last spring. Cleaned the cheese mess from last weekend and the cookie sheet disintegrated when I touched it. Going with either heavy gauge carbon steel or stainless next time.

"What they said. Zinc plated is galvanized. Bad stuff."

What are the hex bolts and nuts I bought at Home Depot made of? I used 6 of them to connect a new firebox to a Bandera.

If you bought the shiny ones - they are probably zinc plated (ie. galvanized but shiny). Unless you sprung for stainless!!

Come to think of it, I haven't seen my baffle in a while. I'd better make sure it's still there!

What are the original bolts made of? They rusted pretty farken good so I assume they were steel. Stainless would be the way to go.
