Default big beer mashing in 2 coolers??

I am getting ready to do a strong Belgian dark ale and this will be the first big beer (over 1.1oo) so I wanted to make sure I have everything set before I order ingredients or do anything else. I will be doing the mash in 2 separate 10 gallon gott coolers at the same time and then running off into one pot. I know I saw something about this on here but could not find it again, does doing this help with efficiency? Also I plugged the recipe in at 55% but shot for an OG higher then what I want? Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Recipe is as follows:
