It would not take much to make it a mash tun. I would go that route instead of making it a BK. I recirculate hot water through the jacket on mine to maintain temps during mash. You could also fill the jacket with liquid foam to insulate it and abandon the jacket and use a RIMS tube or HERMS coil. I'm sure Jaybird could make you a false bottom. All you would need is to adapt the drain to your system. I drilled a hole in my lid and added a CamLok to inside and out for recirculation through my HERMS. And welded a 1 ½ “ triclamp to the drain. Get a 55 gallon stainless drum for a BK and you have a cheap 1.5BBL system.
Here's mine -
