Welding Aluminum To Steel

Title: Welding Aluminum To Steel

I have a situation where a aluminum column(6061-T6) is to be welded to a steel(36 ksi) base plate. Due to the wide difference of melting temperatures, I understand one option is the use of an aluminum-steel transition insert. Is this a viable option or are other options more feasible(other than using an aluminum base plate)?

TIA,
