The ground is the center pin on the custom plug. The center pin is attached to the housing (stainless) and the housing is held in place with the two 5/8" nuts securing the heating elements from the inside of the kettle. Its not a true copper ground but its like a copper connection bolted to stainless, just like most custom jobs anyhow. A better ground would be a copper pin bolted to a copper kettle.
