Is there enough room in a 60 qt igloo cooler for a 10 gal all-grain batch?

Yes, with 70% efficiency you can do a 1.075 beer with no problems. That's @ 1.25 qt per pound. You can check your grain bill and strike water @ http://www.rackers.org/calcs.shtml the 3rd calculator on the page is for mash volumes.
