I run something similar to Kal's rig (theelectricbrewery.com).

I welded in a coupling to the keg, and then welded a stainless box to the keg. I also include the heat resistant sheathing for the power cable. I have done several test runs actually brewing and the rig works great. In colder temps (20º-40ºF) the 2000W 120V element cannot keep a rolling boil, but the same element in the HLT works awesome to keep it at either 164º or 170º. I plan to waterproof the install with a cover to the square hole (used to R&R elements if necessary) and same with the cable using cord plugs.
