Had to resurrect this from an old post:

My preferred method for doing a fatty.
Head to the local mart and pick out the fatty you want. I'd suggest you then invest in at least a 12 pack of beer to marinate the fatty in, nothing to expensive, it's just a fatty. Or if you prefer some sort of hard liquor, but it's usually more expensive. Also a lot of time fatties come in two packs or more. It's best if you can separate just the one you want. I've never liked the outcome when I've done more than one fatty at once.
After you've marinated the fatty, I usually rub it down with something while I'm getting a good hot bed going. I like something a little spicy. Once it's rubbed and the bed is hot, just do the fatty for as long as you'd like. A lot of people suggest 2 - 3 hours. That's a little long for me so I usually pre-heat the fatty with a little something to get it started so I only have to really do it for 30 minutes or so. It can get kinda boring doing a fatty.
Kinda like a hot dog down a hallway too. Not all that satisfying.
