Default Camp Fire Porter

So my brewing buddy and i wanted to make a porter, so we looked through our tub of specialty grains and came up with some ideas. Basicly, we want to make a smoked porter, that's rather potent, with a definite biscuit taste to it. We figure it'd make a great beer for while we're out camping and feel at home in that environment. We wrote up a recipe, and whittled down the base malt every time we added a specialty malt. Eventually, we found that we had no base malt left.
Here's my question, I looked up the diastatic power of all of the grains below, and they are very low for the most part. I'm worried that this grain bill will not self convert during the mash. Is that a concern? or am I over thinking this? We wanted it big bodied, so i was thinking 156 for 60, but if it will have issues converting, should we stretch that to 90?
Feel free to critique it on it's other aspects too if you wish.
