Oh, that's basically what I do. I figured you were sparing no expense on the bling for this build- but hey don't mess with what works!

I think the 2 pids is the way to go, it's a little cheaper and gets the job done. There are lots of builds on this site with 2 pids that you could find one of those wiring diagrams for your build. It's fairly easy to do, I did my own and, while its not the prettiest inside, it still works perfect.

Even with one pid you can still make it work. The pid would control the hlt during mash, and switch it to manual model for the bk. you could then find a cheaper controller to just read the mash temp
