Adjusting timing without a light?

I'm sure that my timing on my 258 is off. I'm getting what seems to be chipped, burnt parts on my plugs(the ceramic part of bosch platinums) and I think it might be a timing issue. I know that I'm not running too lean, because that causes that too, I think. How should I go about doing the timing without a timing light? I know how to move the distributor while it is running... Should I let it warm up first? Should I do it during cold idle? It seems to miss the most and pop pop pop during the warmup. Getting light backfires when slowing in gear too.
