Default Rum oaked espresso chocolate porter

I am wanting to try this sometime soon, but there are a few things that are not given, such as boil time op addition time and how long the oak chips sit in the carboy for? and what exactly you do with the chocolate.

also do you mash the sweet potatoes in 3 gallons of water then use that mash water to put your extract into?

anyone that has brewed this I will love if you could give me the information I need to fill in the rest of this recipe!

I have not brewed this...but it sounds pretty awesome. I did brew a beer using the baker's chocolate bars though. I don't suggest using them because of all the fat, which created an oil slick in my boil kettle and fermenter. I plan on using a powdered chocolate for the next time that I brew my chocolate stout.

I can make some assumptions on the rest of the recipe, but will wait to do so incase someone that has already brewed this beer has some insights.
