Default Stainless steel or Black steel

I am building a Grill/Smoke pit, and i was wanting some feed back on a question my neighbor brought up. I was planning on making the grate out of 3/8 stainless bar stock. My neighbor works for a sheet metal company and he said that he wasn't sure if he would use stainless with the higher heat that a grill would put out. Something about the nickel in the stainless not performing well and leading to corrosion over time. I thought most grills that you buy off the shelf use stainless steel so i'm not sure that would be an issue. What do you think. should i use stainless or stick with black steel instead. Thanks.
