i assume the tire eater means corn sugar -- hopefully...

no differences in technique, but you may need to use a different amount of DME compared to how much corn sugar (?) you've been using.

this should help you out: The Beer Recipator - Carbonation

And to answer the OP's question.....
The difference is the time it takes to carb your beer. Corn sugar generally takes 3 weeks for full carb, DME takes about 5 weeks to carb.
