Default Galvanized steel and cooking

I'm searching for a whole hog spit roaster and find that at least one of the manufacturers is offering them with a galvanized steel coal tray/bed. Is this reckless? I understand that galvanized steel at high temps. is harmful.

In long-term, continuous exposure, the recommended maximum temperature for hot-dip galvanized steel is 200 °C (392 °F), according to the American Galvanizers Association. The use of galvanized steel at temperatures above this will result in peeling of the zinc at the inter metallic layer.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hot-di...tallic%20layer.


At what temperature does galvanized steel become toxic?
392 F
Zinc toxicity can occur when an individual is exposed to and breathes the heated yellowish fumes produced from welding or heating galvanized steel. For hot-dipped galvanized steel the recommended maximum temperature is 392 F (200 C), before the metal presents a toxicity risk.

That surprised me at such a Low temp.
Older Galvinising down here was heavier than todays product, Maybe a different/safer product?

Hot dipped or Electroplated

I’m a galvanized metal welder/shop owner. (Almost 20 years) I have had zinc poisoning from fumes because of a faulty respirator. Not a fun ride. No permanent damage to the body, but not fun. I know im talking welding fumes, but don’t cook on or with galvanized anything. It’s effing nasty.

I would rule that one out for sure. Even way back in high school at a summer job we were warned about heating galvanized.

Heed Ryan's warnings. Galvie flu shouldn't be taken lightly. I'd rule out the Charotis immediately.

I agree and have ruled out the model with the galvanized coal bed but there's nothing wrong with use of galvanized steel for the uprights in their open fire stand. I don't intend to spend the money they ask for the stainless model for the once or twice annual use I intend for this contraption. I am just amazed that they would advertise such a thing.
