Default Help converting All Grain recipe to Extract

Here's a recipe I'd like to brew which was posted over at Northern Brewer:

5 Gallon Batch Size
60% expected efficiency (yeah, my mash tun set up is ghetto)
Target OG: 1.073
Target FG: 1.018
Single Infusion Mash @ 158 degrees

13.5 lbs. American 2-Row 79.41%
1.0 lbs. English Chocolate Malt 5.88%
1.0 lbs. Crystal 120 5.88%
2.0 lbs. Cherrywood Smoked Malt 5.88%
0.5 lbs. Roasted Barley 2.94%
60 minute boil
1.5 oz. of US Magnum added @ 60 minutes for 68.8 IBU

I'm assuming I can just steep the specialty grains (chocolate malt, crystal 120, cherrywood, roasted barley) like I would normally would? What would the conversion of the 13.5 lbs of American 2-Row be for LME?

Thank you!

If you just steep the grains (which should work fine), you'll need 10.75 lb of LME or 8.75 DME to hit 1.077 (which my Beersmith calculated for 60% eff). With that grain bill, light pale extract will work well.
