I prefer to tap out rounds with the correct thread for these kinds of fittings, nuts tend to warp from the welding heat. A piece of 2 inch round 1" deep with the correct thread drilled and tapped into it makes a nice beefy chunk of steel to weld on. The main benefit is you don't have to chase the thread after welding since it doesn't warp.
