Exhaust leak

Anyone have any good tips on finding an exhaust leak? I can hear it, but I can't find it. I don't want to use Seafoam yet because I just used it 1,000 miles ago and I just changed my oil.

Thanks!

Well, when I did some Seafoamin, I saw smoke coming out from the EGR supply tube, and when I took off the fabric heatshield that was wrapped around the EGR the back side of it was coated in black carbon, but I didn't see a leak in the EGR tube??
