    So i hired a welder to come out tomorrow and spot weld some C chan onto my OK joe and make 2 grates with angle iron. 
    I bought this steel from a metal works company here in baltimore. I said plain steel for a food smoker. they cut it and put it in my car. this evening i took it out and looked at it up close.. and it doesnt look like plain black steel to me. is this galvanized?

    Looks like non galv steel. Your welder guy can confirm it when he gets there.
