Default First Time Force Carbonating

Hello all,
Thanks for all of the valuable info. I am force carbing in a corny keg for the first time. My only question is, do I still add priming sugar and and DME?
I am making a Bert Grants Perfect Porter Clone I tweaked a little bit. I just want to make sure I'm doing it right. Thanks again for all the help.

If you are force carbonating, you just add the beer. No additional sugar should be added. You'll be using your CO2 tank to carbonate instead.

If you're in no rush to carbonate, set to desired pressure & wait 10ish days. You'll be good to go! Or you can rush it more by setting to 30 psi for 24 hours, remove CO2, bleed pressure & set to desired serving pressure....
