Hoo might know a little about how much heat aluminum can take. Or can't take.

According to Hoo aluminum can almost hold enough heat to make a pot of beans.

It's melting point is alot lower than steel. Steel's melting point depending on the alloy is about 2500* F and aluminum is about 1250* F. It is entirely possible you could melt the aluminum.
