I think I'm going to start with something like this setup by Angry Monk: a lot to learn here
for someone not experienced in eletronics, so I'll start simple and add on as I get

I'm not building one of these, but I'll help you if nobody else does.You don't need a relay.
You need 2 PID controllers, one with at least a relay output and one with the fancy SSR PWM
