    You need to remove the bung in the top for starters. This will act as a chimney for youe bbq, second fill it with water and get asmuch oil out as possible, then fill it with water again and cut into it. but you must remove the bung from the top!!

    I want to cut a door in the side of the drum and turn it into a bbq. I'm probably going to use abrasive cutoff disks in my angle grinder so there will be a lot of sparks and I'm worried about igniting the oil in a confined space.

    Does anyone have any advice for cleaning the barrel out or any other suggestions for how I should go about doing this? Thanks.

    The only real safe way is to fill with an inert gas(argon) but that is expensive so i would use water and dish detergent

    the water is the best bet for this solution. lay the barrel on its side and make your cut. i have made cuts in barrels that had gasoline and diesel in them and i had no problems. just be sure to fill the barrel right to the point were you will be making the cuts. keep it simple.
