Personally, I'd rather do so on the computer. Take a good sequence of shots, then take a photo of a grey card and use it as a reference point for WB in post processing. It's much better than using the presets in camera, in my opinion.

You... can use the gray card shot as a custom WB setting in-camera, you know.

I shoot everything AWB. If its off, I just change it in post. If I'm shooting sports, I'll put it at a Kelvin value (which you can't do with the T2/3i.

I use a gray card for almost everything (when possible), but I try and avoid AWB unless I'm under mixed lighting and intend on fixing in post anyway.

To simplify it, we're talking about how we control white balance.

White balance = What color values the camera should interpret as white (and from there, the color space of the photo). It's also the reasons why on some photos there may be a blue or yellow tint to it.
