grill ignitors work pretty simple, there should be two wire leads from the end opposite the button. One is on the very tip, the other is on the side about halfway. The side one is the tricky one, some bbq ignitors have a thin wire, others have a little tab. The tab one is easy because you can put a little clip onto it, the wire one has to be soldered or taped very good (which wont be very reliable)
Once you locate the two wire leads simply attach wires to both and attach those two wires to a pair of screws mounted into the chamber at angles so the spark gap is no larger than 1/4". Make sure you put the screws through a double thick layer of PVC where two fittings meet (for safety)
