Using Oats

If a recipe calls for a small amount of oats, I was wondering about
the necessity of partially cooking them for gelatinization before
adding them to the mash.  Charlie Papazian mentions this, but I
question whether it's really needed.  I was going to simply take the
half-pound of rolled oats and add them to the hopper as I gring the
malt, then just mash them along with everything else.  Wouldn't this
be sufficient?

I wouldn't grind them...at least, I never have and they've been fine.
Use flaked oats or quick oats to avoid the precooking...they're already
gelatinized.
