As commented on this thread already, the power pull is for the ignitor. If you manually light it, then your max draw won't approach 600w. Once lit, all you need to power is the controller and fan, assuming there is no need to relight your fire.
I have talked with a restaurant owner in the St. Louis area who intentionally manually lights his cookers so as to lessen the draw when he lights several FEC's every morning.
