put it into the external card and use Recovery or

use Odin ?
Most custom kernels are in CWM .zip format and are flashed via custom recovery, such as PhilZ, after removing any vestiges of the previous kernel, (initd scripts, scripts, etc: ). I use Hawker's Core and KernelWipe scripts for this.

However, if you have a GT-i9505, quad core, phone variant and are on firmware version MGG or later, flashing a custom kernel will trip your Knox flag and void your warranty. See, Knox Security & locked bootloader on new firmwares.
Did you know that hitting the Thanks button is quicker than typing it and the Search button is your friend.
