I don't know if it's any different for boys than it is for girls, but I had to potty train my daughter twice (she was fully potty trained at 2 and then had a traumatic event and reversed when she was 3) and both times I did it the same way.
Put him in Pull Ups immediately!! Get rid of any diapers you have. Kids associate diapers with their parents changing them. Explain to him that pull ups are for big boys and make him feel really special about being able to wear them. Let him know that he can pull them up and down on his own. Also, take him to the store and have him pick out some underwear that he likes. Tell him that he can wear his new underwear once he starts going to the potty. If he really likes his pull ups and his underwear he won't want to ruin them by going potty in them. Anytime he goes potty in his pull ups just take him to the bathroom and sit him on the potty. If he pooped in the pull ups, then dump the poop in the toilet and show him that's where it goes. Eventually he will associate the toilet with going potty and will try on his own. When he tries to use the potty, praise him a lot!! Don't ever get mad at him for accidents because he will be having a TON of accidents.
Personally, I don't like the idea of bribing a child to use the potty. They are only going to try to go potty for the present instead of learning that they go on the potty when they have "that feeling". It's really important for them to associate "that feeling" with the toilet. That's why you place them on the toilet every time they potty in their pull up.
You can also buy a few of those portable potty's and put one in his room, one in the family room and one in the bathroom... wherever you hang out the most in the house.
Also, I believe when potty training boys, the male role model is supposed to start sitting down while peeing and let him watch. He will be confused if he sees you standing up peeing and you and Jen will be cleaning piss from every wall and the ceiling in the bathroom!!
I hope that makes sense... I'm rambling.
