Default Ball Valve for Kettle

Hey guys, just finally got myself a dedicated 62qt bayou classic brewing kettle and want add a ball valve to it. Is there any tutorials or lists of what parts I need exactly to do this, that I can purchase from home depot or lowes instead of online?

You can get a brass ball valve at some Lowes/HD. You are going to have a !#$^&@ of a time finding the rest of the parts in stainless. Anything that touches the wort needs to be stainless, They do not make all these parts in brass, to my knowledge and galvanized steel will corrode and rust very fast.

It looks like BF has the keg weldless bulkhead kits....
