Default okay need some help on my 250 gal build i think it will work but not sure!!!!!!

okay brainiacs i have a 250 gal tank with a 60 gal in the center for my fire box i just got a great idea for a water/moister supply to it.my 120 gal i built i have a 5 gal air tank i put on the side of my fire box so that it heats the water so that when i do comps i have hot water......so i came up with the idea that i could do the same thing but i could do a 1 1/4 steel pipe coming from the 5 gal tank into the smoker going over my heat inputs coming from my fire box and hoping it gets hot enough to make steam right...... then on the 5 gal tank put an off/on valve to control the amount of water. it works great on my other cooker but it just has a hose bib and water only comes out. only thing im worried about is rust.. what should i do or could i do?

When heating water over any fire, you should have a pressure relief valve. Like a hot water heater or boiler. If I understand your design. A P&H person would be your best help here.
