You need to have convenient restriction sites around the site so
that the pcr products are about 3-500nt. I use Pfu polymerase, and very
low concs. (20-50uM) dntp; this reduces artefacts. You need about 12-15
nt on either side of the mismatched site, so that the pcr can be done
at relatively high temperatures, again this reduces artefacts. Use
plenty of plasmid as template; this reduces the number of cycles you
need.  The actual stuff can be done in a day.

If you need more details let me know.
Cheers Shoumo
