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.

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?
