Question

Okay, I've stone veneered my first wall. Now, how do you grout this thing? It seems like it will be much harder than grouting tile. Any and all help in this would be much appreciated.

A couple of ways:
Hawk and the backside pointing trowel. Using one edge of the backside of a pointing trowel "scrape" a bead of mortar from the hawk onto the edge, then swipe the mortar into the joint in a sweeping motion, then compact. (Some like to scrape the mortar from the hawk with a jointer, compacting at the same time).

Grout bag. Using a grout bag develops a King Kong bone crushing grip, plus Popeye forearms. "Cake decorating" with cement grout or mortar. A grout bag is an enlarged heavy duty version of a cake decorating bag. Simple: load, point, squeeze, squeeze, and squeeze some more. Afterward compact the mortar.
