Default pit galvanized metal liners

I want to make a liner for a box type cooker. The liner also serves as a drip or catch pan. I know there are many people that are afraid of galvanize metal around any food. I believe this came from the problem of welding and burning of galvanize metal and breathng the fumes. I don't see this as the same thing since cokoing in the 300 -400 degF range cannot vaporize the metals.
What are the opinions of the people that are knowledgable of such applications ( not impressions but facts).

Thanks for your input.

I've seen data that says galv fumes arent released until around the 800*F mark. But most people just simply stay away from galv coated metal in their cooking equipment. So, the call is yours.

I know a guy who uses a trash can for a cooker at camps...he does an initial burn to coat it and burn off any nasties...then he is good to go...he has been using the trash can method for the better part of 20 yrs...and he is still alive.

I was wondering about that too. Yesterday I saw Clint's pig roast pics using a La Caja China. On their web site the small unit it galvanized metal on the inside.

It's sort of like running stop signs and running red lights...it's perfectly safe;
until something goes wrong and you get hurt; or die.

To my knowledge; galvanized metal was never intended to be used for
cooking or storing food...if it was you would find cookware and ovens and
other cooking items made from galvanized metal.

I believe it is a BAD idea to go to the hardware store and buy galvanized
trash cans, or plastic buckets, or plastic containers for use in cooking or
storing food....they are NOT food grade plastics or metal.

Many people smoke cigarettes all their lives...and nothing happens.
Others get Cancer and die a nasty death.

Is it worth a few dollars to risk your health; and your family & friends
health by using galvanized metal around food?

This is just MY personal opinion.

As long as you coat your galvanized metal with liberal coating of MSG you will be fine.

If you cook MSG enhanced meat in a galvanized metal pit you don't get headaches...

Your head turns green shrivels up and falls off...

Hmm 2 key words spoken here,....SICK & BURN, those should be enough.

Or then again I always felt Darwins theory on the process of natural selection was brilliant so um,....go for it dude.

You cant just "burn off" galvanizing. It gets deeper than just the surface of the metal. As long as it doesn't get hot enough for fumes to start, like mentioned above look at the La Caja China cooker pig roast.

As for the rest of this thread...im out.
