I force carb, if you use priming sugar, you basically just do the same thing as bottles, but when it is done carbonating you just stick it in the kegerator and attach the correct pressure of CO2.
I attach a blow off tube (1/2") to the CO2 inlet. I just take the poppet and such all the way off and attach it to the threads. At the end of fermentation I sometimes just walk by and periodically release the pressure instead, but if you did that during vigorous fermentation the keg would shoot beer all over the place and you would probably run into the emergency pressure release. (130psi) Plus, your beer would be overcarbed.
