I’d be concerned with the weldless bulkhead ball valve. My old kettle had one and though I never had a problem and you may not either... I was always crossing my fingers that o-ring didn’t fail at the wrong time. I prefer my new kettle with a pull thru welded fitting at the ball valve. Weldless fitting o-rings on the outside of a round vessel compress well at the north and south points but not as well on the east and west points. The opposite is true on the inside where the east and west points of the nut/washer are tight while the north and south make less contact.
If you do get it I recommend a heat shield for that valve o-ring especially if you’re using propane. If you’re using induction I doubt you’ll need one.
