How do I know if my carburetor is rich or lean?

How do you know if your carburetor is running lean?
Typical symptoms of a lean mixture are:
- Backfiring as the throttle is closed (primarily during coast-downs)
- Lurching acceleration.
- White or light gray spark plugs.
- Requiring excessive amounts of choke to run/start.
- White or light gray muffler end pipes.
- Bluing (on chrome systems) of the exhaust header down-pipes.
