Default converting the all electic

After the last brew session SSR failure i am stepping up the time frame for converting my all electric system to a dual fuel system so I have a back up and also more mobility with the rig. The plan is to install a banjo burner under the HLT and boil pot with the HLT being controlled with a separate circuit.

I have seem some TERRIBLE advice on here in the past few months. I may even be guilty of bad advice myself.

have started on the new build starting with the control panel prep using a used 12x12 that had holes one one side but it was free so a little work will save a bunch. the plan is to be both a full 240 volt electric system with 110 control and also a temp controlled lp gas system. The goal is to be able to run separate or combined if needed. the electric will be the easy part the gas side is where my questions are should be fun. will be building complete new control panel so will be able to brew as building

What are your plans for protecting the element & wiring from the heat of the flame?
