FWIW, a friend of mine that's been brewing about 20 years told me to add the pumpkin to the mash last after mashing in the grains. Seemed to work well for me. Make sure to grab a pound of rice hulls too.

Ferment your pumpkin beer INSIDE of a pumpkin.

Do it!

I just did mine yesterday. Baked 60oz of canned pumpkin with a bit of brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice for an hour at 350.

I then mashed in my grains first, then added the pumpkin, didn't use any rice hulls and didn't have any problems with my sparge. Everything went great, smelled amazing in the mash tun and the wort actually was very pumpkin-y.
