Another neat method that I've used on smaller projects is to precut and drill the sill plates before the concrete pour. I mount the anchor bolts in the plates and drop the finished assemblies onto the wet concrete. The result is perfect placement, easy leveling and finishing, no voids or sill seal, and a lot of time saved.
