Default Grounding my 120V heating element

Hi guys.

First, Thank you for everyone who has contributed to this website. It is a valuable resource for everything BEER.

Second, what is the best (and easiest) way to ground the heating element in my BIAB kettle? I am meeting with a welder to attach my 1" stainless nuts and want to make sure I have a ground.

Background: I am building a RIMS 15 gallon kettle with two 1500w 120v heating elements. I would like to enclose them into a gang box and that has the ground screw already attached. How does one attach the gang box to the kettle, as they are very different metals...

How do you attach your gang box to your kettle?
