A thin galvanized pipe will rust, rust proofing coatings will burn away and the rust will begin.You'll have to replace it in a few years time. Get stainless steel, it is more expensive ,but worthwhile in the long term. If doing a double thickness flue, eg going through a roof, you can use a galvanized pipe for the outer one.

I think he was talking about posts to raise the structural slab up to the level of his existing deck, rather than chimney pipe. But stainless posts would look nice.

Excellent thought on the smoker! Take a peek at my albums. The last one I built from their own design, using the void under the oven as the offset area for a cold smoke fire. Or if they want hot smoke it can be set directly on the floor too!

Be bloody careful, that sounds like a fair drop, scaffolding would be a good idea! It only takes a few feet to break something seriously!

Cheers,

My wife is going to hate you for giving me the idea for my next project. I already have a huge offset reverse-flow smoker, but a mini-smokehouse? I definitely need one!

"I am thinking of using steel legs probably 4-5 inch dia. pipe. "

Have you considered concrete piers ? I used 7 1/2 inch sonotube to cast the piers for my oven. Tip: use three piers (not four). You could also extend the piers down into the ground about 4 feet or so and bell out the bottom, this would eliminate the need for a foundation slab.
