black stove pipe vs galvanized stove pipe

I'm sure this has been argued before but a recent customer came in our store and was trying to choose between 8" black stove pipe and the same gauge galvanized pipe. I honestly did not have a clear answer for him. I told him I normally see black within the cabin or house and the galvanized above the roof. Is there a difference? And if so why?

Don't know for sure but I suspect the black pipe will look better after so many fires. Also when brazing galvanized steel it puts off a nauseous fume which non galvanized metal doesn't I don't know if that would play a part or not.

Sounds reasonable to me. Thanks Mark.

Yup. Black is for looks and will rust if installed outside. Galvanized will not rust (or will take longer to rust) when exposed to the outdoors.

I've always heard that heating anything galvanized is not good due to the fumes given off. IMO, outside only.
