so im looking for around 15amps on 2500 element. i would be looking to power the relay using the inkbird,hence AC input and use the output to run the element, sound about right?

If you are looking to run a 2500 element and your nominal voltage is 230v your looking just slightly under 11 amp rating.
2500/230=10.9
wattage divided by voltage = ampere rating.

I managed to wire on up (eventually). Finding a wiring diagram is the hard part.
