Default How do I do this?..."simple switch controled burners"

This is what I would like to be able to have.

I am building my single tier brute. I am not looking for total automation. However, I would like to basically be able to turn on my main gas supply valve, flip a switch, and viola, flame. I know that I will use a needle type valve to adjust the flame. I want this ability on all 3 HIGH pressure propane burners individually.

So what do I need, and how do I set it up?

you might get more responses in the diy forum. this section deals more with electric heat rather than gas.

you need to know what gas valve you will get, well just do a manual gas valves with a standalone pilot lights. i have set up like that on my rig.

I scored three Asco valves from a junked compressor unit at work. Still have to test them to make sure they work.

Can I use these with needle valves(to control flame)?

Still need an idea to switch on/offf flame? and pilot/igniter?
