Butt joint in drywall

What is the best way to get a smooth even joint when butting 2 pieces of drywall together ?

Keep the mud thickness as thin as possible and the joint width as wide as possible. Minimum joit width 12" with average being 16" - 24". Butt joints are never 'perfect' but all you need to do is fool the naked [or atleast untrained] eye.
