Subject: Effect of rust in a BBQ pit

I am in the process of building my own combination grill / offset smoker from assorted recycled materials. I have a 36" X 18" iron pipe (3/8" thick) as the cooking chamber. It has never been painted nor was it plated or galvanized, however, it's pretty rusty. With considerable time and effort I can grind the rust off, something I intend to do for the exterior for sure. As for the interior, I was wondering if could let it be "as is" and just season my pit with a half day of burning briquettes. Would the rust affect my meat afterwards or do I have to strip it off no matter what ? Also, can I safely use an acid-based rust converter for the interior instead ?

Thanks, JP
