How do I properly winterize my outboard motor?

"To properly winterize your outboard motor, you should first add a fuel stabilizer to the gas tank and run the engine for a few minutes to circulate the stabilizer through the fuel system. Next, change the oil and oil filter and check the gear lube level. Drain the lower unit by removing the drain plug. Finally, fog the engine with a spray lubricant and cover the motor to protect it from the elements."
