Where can you acquire NON-Galvanized steel pipe?

Mt friends have found plans to build a forge, and we have all the parts to build it EXCEPT for non-galvanized steel pipe. Because the pipe will be heated up, we cannot use galvanized steel pipe as the zinc used in the galvanization process produces deadly fumes when heated up. We have checked stores such as Home Depot, and Lowes, but neither one has what we need. Does anyone know where (and if), we can get non-galvanized steel pipe? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

You can also soak galvanized fittings in vinegar to strip them.

All the Home Depots that I've been to carry "black pipe". It is not galvanized.

OK thanks, I'll look into that.
+1 "black iron pipe"
The fumes aren't "deadly", and they're one-time. Don't breathe the crud while its burning off - but if you do, you'll end up feeling like you have very bad flu for a few days.

Any decent steel stockholder will hold non-galv pipe.
