Hello HBT - tried to make a basic irish red ale with additional oak flavors. Do the grain percentages look ok? Thank you for any comments or suggestions.

Recipe: 1 gallon All Grain
Style: Irish Red

SRM: 14.4 SRM
IBU: 25.3
OG: 1.052 SG
FG: 1.011 SG
Est ABV: 5.4 %

Ingredients:
1 lbs 8.0 oz Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM) 73.7 %
4.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) 12.3 %
4.0 oz Victory Malt (25.0 SRM) 12.3 %
0.6 oz Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM) 1.7%

0.25 oz EKG 50 min
0.13 oz EKG 30 min
0.06 oz EKG 5 min

Safale English Ale S-04

60 min mash @ 154*f
60 min boil

Ferment in primary for ~4 weeks, thinking of adding toasted oak cubes (that were sterilized in Irish whiskey) for the last few days to taste.

How does it look? Hopefully will be brewing this weekend. Thanks again in advance for any comments or suggestions. Happy Brewing

I'm guessing you mean 10 lbs of base malt?

Other than that I'd say you've got it figured out.
