Default Wiring of pump switch

I'm almost at the end of my single tier stand build which will hold a direct fired propane RIMS setup, with just a few items remaining.

I know there are many EE's and electricians (and experience) on here, so here's hoping:

I am having troubling with the wiring design of this setup:

120V Line-->pilot light switch-->GFCI outlet-->Load.

If this is contained in a plastic 2-gang weatherproof box attached to my brewstand, am I going to have an issue with the grounding of this system? If I put the GFCI protection elsewhere, can I just pigtail the grounds back to the GFCI protected outlet?

Take a look here. It will give you some info. You probably aren't wired up exactly like this entire panel, but is good info none-the-less...

I used a metal weatherproof box so I could ground the outlet and the stand and moved the gfci protection back to the wall.

Thanks for that link, lots of helpful stuff in there.
