Where are you staying? We'll see what we can do.
I am trying for the complicated, deluxe method. The simple way would be to buy this kit: Brinkmann Universal Push Button Igniter-812-7221-S - The Home Depot
And install the button in a hole in the front of the stove next to the spark knob for the burners. The igniter piece would mount right above the pilot light orifice and by pushing the button it would spark and light the pilot. This is a mechanical one spark per button push system. This is what you see on most simple grills.
I wanted to use a battery spark generator and have a simple, quiet button to push which activates the sparks. The electronic module with the battery in it makes about 4 sparks per second and will sure to light the pilot. Basically it's figured out, part of it is installed and working but I need to buy one more part for total success. I bought this kit: Brinkmann Universal Electronic Ignitor Kit-812-7220-S - The Home Depot
But after installing the igniter piece in the oven, just above the pilot light, I found out that the electronic part (that creates the spark) was just too big to comfortably mount on the front of the stove next to the spark knob for the burners. The button is built into the case with the battery and the spark generator and just too big. I will be buying this kit: Weber Spirit 210-310 Gas Grills Igniter Kit with Front-Mounted Control Panel-7642 - The Home Depot
This second kit has a remote button that is small and can easily be mounted on the front of the stove and the electronic part with the battery can be put inside the stove under the burners. Plenty of room for it inside. I will have to do some temperature testing and may have to wrap the electronic part in a thermo shield. I don't think that would be necessary though. Photos and details to come.
