pretty easy
I kinda use a combination of both techniques. After adjusting a few valves and watching how much I had to backoff to get to the the .0025 measurement. I arrived at the same method as his, but I check with the backside feelers.

I still think you have to check it though. It is somewhat difficult to tell "exactly" where you are at zero clearance. You can have a "little" push on the valve if you are not careful.
