There was an all-grain recipe much earlier in the thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f68/double-chocolate-oatmeal-snout-126638/#post1576320
That's the one I used, I just finished transferring it to the secondary on Monday. It should be okay, although I screwed up the sparge (it was my first all-grain ever, and the sparge water temperature was too low) so I didn't get as much extracted as I should have. Nonetheless, it tasted fine to me so I'm letting it go through to maturity.
(Side note: mine is more of a Mocha Stout: I added 16 ounces of cooled espresso to the secondary on top of the vanilla. The taste test was promising!)
