Well you can certainly do that but your primary will be a hot mess of pumpkin protein chunks. I've learned my lesson from previous experiences

According to the Libby pumpkin label each 29oz. can has 28 grams of sugar. I'm wondering just how much sugar is being extracted from the pumpkin by adding it to the mash? Would you get more pumpkin flavor and more sugar by adding the pumpkin to the boil? Has anyone tried brewing it this way? Just curious........
I've done an extract version of a pumpkin ale and added the puree (after baking it with brown sugar) to the boil. It turned out great.

Sorry to ask a dumb question but I'm still fairly new to brewing. This pertains to the extract version of this recipe.

When exactly in the process do I add the pumpkin? Do I add it to the grain bag with the specialty grains? I've never made a beer that had something other than specialty grains so I am confused here.

Yup, when you steep your specialty grains, you steep the pumpkin.

All in one grain bag or separate bags?

If you have enough space in the steeping bag, might as well toss it in there.

THIS will be the base for a pumpkin beer that SWMBO will get for the fall Thanks for sharing Reno!

I did a search and read over half of all the posts but couldn't find if anyone tried a decoction for this baby. Since decoction adds some biscuity/toasty aroma and color to the beer I was thinking to give it a try. Based on Braukaiser's tutorial it might also help with thinning out the mash a bit. Any input on this?

I wouldn't; and here's why:
This is a spiced beer with pumpkin "paste" added to the mash. Any subtlety added from boiling the decoctions will be hiding behind the spice. Also, and perhaps more important to me, decoctions are hard enough to run off by them selfs. Add the pumpkin to it and you could use the mash to repair leaks in your roof! In other words, your asking
For a stuck mash.
