I line my MLT with a bag when I use wheat or anything else that might stick the sparge. I guess you could say I MIAB.

BIAB rules. I use it every time, don't have room for an extra cooler/mash tun and don't need it. I get good efficiency and make good beer.

I am anxious to give it a shot. Picked up a polyester sheer panel @ BigLots today fro $5. It is huge, enough for many bags. I may end-up cutting in in quarters, and forego the bag route but just using it to hold the grains.

You don't need to make a bag. You can use a whole sheet pushed into the kettle.

This is a large sheet, maybe enough to cover a small car.

BIAB rules!
I use it for beers requiring around 10 lbs or less. Place a 2x3ft bag (bigger than I need) and clip it to the sides of my 22qt stock pot. In goes all the grains x 60min. Then place a standard metal colander over stock pot,bag with grains on top, and sparge as normal.
Did a pilsner with about 9lbs and hit my og just fine.
In fact, just did 11.5 lb Belgian on this way although there was a lot of grains on the colander. Again hit my og as planned.
Happy brewing!

I use a 17.5 gallon stock pot, and line the included steamer basket with the same 2'x3' nylon bag Hoss the Great linked to in post 18. I use the steamer basket because it's easier to lift out than a big, wet bag. I also don't have to worry about the bag breaking.

I actually posted a thread a while back about my setup with pics.
