Hi, I'm not an engineer, but I would lean toward 2' square tubing as to angle. Tubing has almost twice the loading strength to angle, wich will twist, buckle and then kink. Rectangular tubing is even better.
As for the concreting, I would use galvernised steel with maybe even a cold-gal paint over the top, as you will not see the corrosion (rust) in the slab. The slab would have to be substancial as the overhang will excentuate the forces with leverage, so the slab has to reach as far out as the overhang and will require steel mesh re-inforcing. This will also be an expense. Better to hang it off a wall or something, with chains. Just a thought.

Hope this makes sense, good luck.
