All new Smokin Wedgies are made of Stainless Steel and will not rust.
We looked at a number of other alloys and virtually all have questionable off gassing, some metals from China looked good but were plated with alloys that they wouldn't identify. Galvanized has serious zinc off gassing and is claimed to be hazardous. This is why welders are concerned when welding galvanized steel and getting sick from it. Besides making the smoker much more expensive, it doesn't gain us much as making it out of stainless as it is meant to burn in a grill.
