The only thing you need for grub.cfg then is:

### grub.cfg
set default=0
set timeout=5

insmod ext2
set root=(hd0,3)

menuentry "mylinux" {
    linux /boot/LFSkernel root=/dev/sda3 ro
}

You could probably get by with:

insmod ext2
menuentry "mylinux" {linux (hd0,3)/boot/LFSkernel root=/dev/sda3 ro}
