How can i tell if my engine is detonating? Its a sbc with a mild cam. It is running like it is missing but all plugs and wires are fine. Any other suggestions?

Does it sound like it has marbles in it while accelerating?

I think i got it. I found one plug wire laying on the header and was burnt. I wrapped it in tape and pulled it out of the way until Monday when parts stores are open again and i have the timing at 12 btdc. And it runs fine now. Thanks for the help though. The plugs are kind of tan grey and brown colors.
