That sound like a lot more smoke than I get Candice. at least I wouldn't call it a grease fire.
I actually had it set to 350F but i had the lid open during the igniting. Once it switched to preheating i closed the lid, at that point after a good 10-15 min is when it started smoking like cheech and chong. It went on for another 10 min until i paniced and opened the lid, then almost magic dragon like, it stopped smoking and started burning clean. Coincedence? I am not sure.
