Aluminum support?

I really didn’t know where to post this, but I have a question about a used grill island that I recently bought and I’m refurbishing. Long story short, to support the cast-iron grates I need to put a new support along the front inside of the grill. I’m wondering if a thick aluminum or stainless steel would work, the aluminum is cheaper and would be easier to work with, I just was wondering as far as any metallic or toxic effects there would be from the aluminum but I see it does have a fairly high melting point.
