I wonder if Nikons are as good in that department. Must check for my D7000. Thanks for the tip, ladies
ETA: Here's a guy who has a couple walkthroughs for different Nikons Back Button Focusing – Easier than you think!

Suzanne, I actually hear that Nikon has the better focusing system in general. Canon's been developing the video function, while Nikon has been developing their focusing system. There's one pro photographer that I love who recently switched everything she had from Canon over to Nikon to get better focus! I can't even imagine how much that cost!
Awesome, Stephanie! I really like to hear that. I only wish I had my camera here with me now to go ahead and set it up.
So....I thought I was back button focusing, but I wasn't! omg... Anyway, I'm slightly confused. Do you hit the * button and then the shutter button? Or do you press the shutter halfway down and then the * button and then take the picture. I played around with it a little today, but couldn't figure out the correct way.

I LOVE BB focus! OMG!! My focus button is the 'AF-on' button, btw, on C-Fn. 3. It works just as well for me with that button so I may just keep it.
