Question [Q] Help With Custom Kernels.

I've installed custom Kernels many times before, but always on Aosp based ROMs that doesn't have SuperSu or any similar software, but when it comes to TW based ROMs I couldn't manage to flash any custom kernel on any TW based ROMs as they come with SuperSu by deafult, so when I go into recovery and install the kernel zip. file, it shows an error with SuperSu binary and phone get bricked, so I have to flash the stock firmware, in order to fix the device, this happened with me multiple times with different kernels, so I was thinking could I use the stock firmware and, root without automatically installing SuperSu, install the kernel then afterwards download Supersu from the store?
Don't thank me, the button is more valuable to me.

There is a superuser update binary zip you can flash through recovery. If you are rooted then you need superuser. I think you have to be rooted to install a custom kernel
