Default mash tun with round false bottom noob questions

Hey all, I am in the process of putting my all grain system together and have a few questions. The only questions I really have is on the fittings for the cooler conversion. I am planning on using a ten gallon cylindrical cooler and already have a round false bottom with a 3/8 barb. I just need to know what other parts and fittings I'll need since I'm not sure on how to attach the ball valve to the mash tun. Should I just use a nut and washer with a hose barn to secure them? thanks

I know there are threads on the DIY section for this, or you can go to the northern brewer website because they have instructions on how to do theirs.

Probably the longest running round cooler MLT thread is like one thread above this one...
