Do you know of a rheostat that will be rated for that high amount of wattage that is under a few hundred dollars?
Some people have looked into using electric range controls, not sure if anyone has been successful. I don't know why you wouldn't just use a pwm circuit, for under like 15$ with the ssr and heat sink and it will "control the heat".
