Default Solder steel to aluminum?

If I eat a steel galvanized female threaded couplong, will it solder to an aluminum or mild steel male threaded EMT fitting. Seems like it would work. I dont want tje joint to turn or roll in the junction.

You can do steel to steel, but not steel to aluminum.

Thinwall EMT fittings are made out of zinc.

i dont know about galvanized n aluminu... but theres a solder called Cronatron #53.. use that and Cronatron f53 flux... i know you can solder auminum to copper with that.. it holds to 7000psi... but not sure about your idea... do a web search and see if you can find more on that solder... i hope this helps
