Default Making a porter from home roasted malts exclusively

I'm planning to do a porter using only home roasted malts. I'm going for a malty and full flavor with some toasty and roasted notes. This is an experiment so the batch size will be around 2,5 gallons.

I outllined the recipe as something like:

70% Pale malt
15% Amber malt ~35L, 30 minutes at 350 degrees F
10% Brown malt ~175L, 50 minutes at 400 degrees F
5% Black malt ~1000L, HOW DO I DO THIS?

Mashed at a higher temperature to get a maltier profile, maybe 154 F?

Hops 60 min for ~25 IBU

The link where i got the roasting times for amber and brown malt is:
http://barleypopmaker.info/2009/12/0...ng-your-malts/

But my big question is how to make the black malt. I read somewhere a while ago that soaking the malt for an hour and then roasting it on a hot frying pan should do the trick. Are there any other methods and how do I make the black malt safely (without burning the malt and ruining my beer)?

Comments and advice on anything with the project is extremely welcome!

I've been meaning to try something similar, so far have only been using the following method: http://www.brewery.org/library/roastmaltGC.html

However the another post I've read on this, but haven't tried, did say you could get a black patent malt at 400-450F for 60-90 minutes.

I did a porter with all home toasted malts a while ago.
What I did for the black malt was use a small toaster oven, watched it like a hawk to make sure it didn't burn, stirred often and gave it a mist of water every once in a while.
