Default 10 Gallon mix and match funness

Okay so due to the new kiddo my brewing availability has been severely reduced. Because of this I'm going to attempt to do a 10 gallon batch but I don't really have all the required equipment, but I think I can make it work. Let me know if you see any major problems with this plan:

Equipment I do have:

  • 10 Gallon Igloo Mash Tun with a homemade hose screen (works great, last batch = 78% efficiency)
  • Standard Size Keggle
  • 10 Gallon Polarware pot
  • 5 Gallon cheapo pot
  • wort chiller
  • Misc equipment needed (termometer, mash paddles, etc)

My plan of action:
  • Take the hose screen out of my Igloo Mash Tun and install it into the Keggle
  • Heat up my strike water in the Keggle and just use it as my MLT
  • After I'm done mashing empty the wort into my two pots
  • Dump the grains out of the keggle and rinse it out
  • Put the wort back into the keggle and use it as my boil pot
  • Continue on with my brew day like normal

See any major issues with any of this?
