Hi Richard,

my personal choice would probably be to use an integrated chip that does 
everything, including D/A-conversion, e.g. the MAX6675:


Since it may be more convenient for you to use the existing DAC, you may prefer 
one of the older chips with analog output, though. AD595 would be a good choice:


Of course you'll need to have a loot at the datasheets to see whether the 
devices match the temperature range you need.

Hope it helps.

Have a good day!
