Jim, why so many screws? Deep pockets huh?

Perry is correct about the grout filling any corner voids, just watch what your doing and don't mix the grout too stiff if you know you have voids to fill.

The grout bag is a rediculous idea. Use a grout float and get it over with long before three a.m.

Shaping (tooling) the grout is also a waste of yor time. A sponge will do all that for you, and quickly too.

The mortar (thinset) should rise only about 1/3 of the depth of the grout joint. Mortar that is too high can have an effect on the finished appearance of the grout.
