I used to use Debian Live with persistence, but lately I've changed to a
much easier method.  Now I just do a normal Debian install but install
it to a USB stick instead of a hard drive.  Works fine.  I make some
tweaks to improve performance, such as mounting various folders at
tmpfs.  But it works pretty well even without those tweaks.

Just make sure you install grub to the USB stick and not to the hard
drive of whatever computer you're using for the installation.
