I've often wondered why I haven't seen a simple solution to temperature control for either a gas or charcoal grill that uses an electric heater and thermostat.

The idea would be to get to a slightly lower temperature than is desired with gas/charcoal and use the heater to regulate the temperature to the exact value required. Seems simple.

That's a solution in search of a problem. Might as well use a gas or electric smoker with chips or a smoking tube at that point, which people already do.

IMHO exact temperature control isn't necessary.
The homemade smoker at hunting camp didn't have a thermometer for the first 10 years.
Now it does & the temps when Jerry tends it range from 200F to 350F :shock:
The food tastes just as good as my WSM at home which will run 230 for hours with minimal variaction.
( Of course drinking all afternoon at camp may alter our taste buds :-o
