Default Pumpkin Ale

I've been doing some research on pumpkin ales, as I would like to make one for Thanksgiving. I've come up with a recipe based on other recipes, and advice from brewers, but I want to run it by others to get feedback:

6 lbs. Light DME
2 lbs. American 2-row
1 lbs. Crystal Malt, 40L
½ lbs. Carapils
1/3 lbs. canned pumpkin (roasted/carmelized)

(60 min.) 1 oz. Cascade

(30 min.) 1 oz. Fuggles

(5 min.)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. ground allspice
1 tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. vanilla extract

WLP005 British Ale Yeast

This is a partial mash recipe, and my question is what people think about using a fresh whole pumpkin and ingredients, such as cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, and vanilla beans, etc. versus using ground versions and extracts, and canned pumpkins. I don't know if anyone has some advice for this, but it would be much appreciated. Thank you!

I've only used canned pumpkin and it came out good. it will be hard to exactly replicate your brew if you use whole ingredients (i.e. using a cinnamon stick this big, or a small clove). I would add spices at 5 min. and also as a tea during secondary or bottling.
