I do 4 lbs of roasted pumpkin in a paint strainer bag in the mash and boil.  I do BIAB, so no stuck sparred.  Good to see the anti-pumpkin goons out in full force.

No offense taken! Guess I should have put a smiley face with my comment.

A pro friend had a local BBQ place cook his pumpkins on a smoker. At least he got some smoke flavor out of his pumpkins beer!

I chop and roast a pie pumpkin and a butternut squash (it has more flavor than pumpkin) and add the pieces to the boil.
Also, I use saison yeast instead of ale yeast to add a bit of the spice notes to the beer.
