I currently live and brew at a little over 10,000 feet and my boiling point is approx. 195-200 degrees. When mashing and doing a decoction, a boiling wort will not bring the mash up as much as calculated on beersmith because the wort addition can be up to 15 degrees lower than at sea level. How would I tell beersmith that my boiling point is lower?

I think you could just add 6-7% more mash to your decoctions.
