[Homeroast] aluminum for roasting

does anyone know if aluminum is a safe metal to have in contact with beans at roast temperatures?  more specifically, i have an aluminum cookie sheet that i'd like to use as sheet metal for parts in fabricating a new drum.  the drum is cast iron, but i'm thinking of using the aluminum as an exit door for the beans.

however, if that's safe, it's got me thinking about using a turkey frying pot as a drum.  if it's ok for cookies, is it ok for coffee?  ...would be much higher temperatures.
