Default Doughing in - alter efficiency?

What are your thoughts on how doughing in can alter efficiency - all the grain then adding all the strike vs altering strike water, grain, strike water, etc.

As long as you are making sure that there are no clumps and your mixing well...shouldn't matter.

agreed. avoiding balls of half dry grain is the important thing. Its easier for me to add the grain to the water, than vice versa.

i used to religiously add water to grain. no longer. you can certainly avoid dough balls when adding water to grain, but it is *much* easier to add grain to water and avoid dough balls. on average it looks like that one change upped my efficiency 2-3%. again though, it doesn't have anything to do with the innate act of adding one to the other, just if you're lazy like me adding grain to water is easier and more reliable.
