is there a difference in flavors if you save some extract for the end of the boil as opposed to adding it all in the beginning or is it strictly appearance?

Adding it at the beginning will lead to more caramelized flavors. I prefer to add it at the end and control the caramel flavors with cartel malt. Another thing to note is that dme keeps much better than lme. So if there is any question of how ling the extract has been sitting in the lhbs, go with dme.

Have a stirring spoon in one hand & your bag of DME in the other. Slowly pour the DME in while stirring because it will clump together if you add too much at once. In my experiences, leaving it on or off the burner didn't make much of a difference on reducing clumping if you're already at a boil.

+1 on adding half at the end of the boil if you're looking for a lighter color.

When using DME, my technique is to pour the DME into a (large) bowl before adding it. I have had issues with the steam of the boil causing my DME to clump in the bag, making it difficult to pour. To solve this I just put it into a bowl and pour it in slowly while stirring (with the burner off of course). No more clumps.

That's a good idea. Last time I used DME I got 95% of it out of the bag before it started to clump in the bag itself from the steam. I'm sure I lost a couple ounces due to that. However, I was making a barleywine targeted at 12.5%, so if it comes in slightly short, I won't be too disappointed.

I keep a pot on the other stove burner. When I'm ready to make a DME addition I first put it in this pot and add 1 quart of water. I stir this on high heat until it begins to boil at which point it becomes all liquid and I can easily pour it into the boil kettle with zero clumping. The additional water has to be factored into initial kettle volume and the target batch volume.

The few times I used LME I simply heated the sealed can in hot water (180F+). This really softens the syrup and it will pour and mix in the kettle much easier.
