Thanks for both of you gentlemen for clearing up and more importantly showing me the post describing how JB Weld failed.

With soldering, I've only done it with copper pipes using a propane torch. Anything special for soldering stainless steel?

I just didn't think that a solder fitting would hold up well to torquing.

You need liquid flux rather than the paste you're used to. Other than that it's pretty easy. See this thread for a lot of hints.

Thanks. I should get an award for reading all 119 pages of that thread!

With the right liquid flux it will solder just like copper. I have soldered fitttings to a keg and you could hit them with a hammer and they won't come off.

Patience Grasshopper, your award will be a well built pot and the ability to mount even more accessories without weld-less kits or a TIG machine.
