I like to stack and sticker outdoors first. Once core M.C. is 15% or so, oak is okay to bring indoors and dry in the fashion you describe. Note that any bugs will not be killed unless you reach 140 degrees.

Problems with bringing green lumber directly into the shop include mold on the lumber, and rusted cast iron tools.
