Sounds like a fairly solid recipe. If you want to increase your hop utilization for a partial boil you could always do a late hop addition. Cut the hops back to their original levels and boil them in water with maybe 1# of extract, and then at 15-5 minutes left, kill the flame, stir in your extract, and finish up the brew as normal. You'll also get a lighter color from this technique, and quite a bit less caramelization of your wort.
Also, a turkey fryer might be a good investment for you, $40 for a 30 qt pot and a pretty decent burner. Just a suggestion for the general improvement of beer.
