Just keep in mind that a 1500w element running at 110 is only putting out 1/4th the wattage = 375W. This will definitely factor into how long it will take to push temps. Might consider a drop in heatstick if you don't use a propane burner for pre-heat.

Only if you buy a 240v element and run it at 110v. If you buy a 110 element and run it at 110, you will get rated wattage.

True. I just assumed base on the OP that a 240 element might be involved.

I am setting up almost this exact same system. Using a 110V element simply to maintain HLT Temp while using burners to ramp up the temp quickly.
