Anyhow, the other way is to make sure you truck good on coolant, run until the T-stat cycles a few times. Then hold the RPM at 3-3500 for 4-5 min or less if bubbles appear.
It sounds like you burped the system well.
Do you have a stock T-stat in the truck?
Just went up lee hill. Got it up to 215F (AC on) and pulled over and had my dad rev it to 3k while i checked the overflow. After a few min of no bubbles i called it good.
