It depends on your definition of "best". If by "best", you mean which balancing process gives the highest airspeed at which flutter would occur, then you should balance the elevators one at a time.
But, most builders balance them as a unit, connected together, and the service history clearly shows that this is completely adequate as long as you respect Van's VNE numbers. If you ever have an inadvertent high airspeed event, balancing the elevators one at a time will give you a bit more flutter margin.
