I burned my Fatboy in as follows:
1. Empty water pan, no heat deflector, no racks, ran at between 350-400 degrees until I couldn't smell the odd odor from the manufacturing oils.
2. Let it cool a bit and then sprayed down everything inside with Pam and burned it at around 300 degrees for another hour or two with a little wood for further seasoning effect.
After that I couldn't wait to eat, so I add more charcoal and threw on a rack of ribs. Really you can do any variation as long as you burn off the oils and add your own layer of cooking oil.
