Here is the wiring difference.

For the 110VAC elements you would use two 110V 30 Amp plugs - they are available from Lowes and Home Depot. The blades look like this | - with the regular round ground hole right below and the plug fits a standard outlet box & outlet cover. The ground side of the plug would stay wired together but you need to separate the hot side by beaking off a small metal tab on the side.

The plug that goes to the wall is still a standard dryer plug.

I attached a simple drawing of how the elements are controlled.
