Like most smashes, it's hard to go wrong. I think your recipe looks good.

If I had to pick out something, I would maybe consider bringing your bittering addition down just a tad, go for a bit more balance. You're at a BU:GU ratio of 0.62 I would maybe shoot for a 0.4-0.5 for a SMaSH, but that's just me trying to pick on something. I would say with a SMaSH you're looking for a well balanced beer, not hoppy, not malty.

Either way I bet you'll have a tasty couple cases of beer.

BU/GU ratio. I'd never heard of that before, but after a bit of quick research, it looks quite useful.

I think dialing that back is probably a good idea, especially since I'm new to all-grain (this will be my 2nd), so it's entirely likely I'd be under my OG (and it'd be even more bitter).
