    Default Burn out advice?

    Cut the top out of my 55 gallon drum last night, plan to burn it out today or tomorrow, it had motor oil in it originally.

    I figure to just lay it on it's side, stoke a healthy wood/char fire, and roll it along a bit from time to time. No idea how to tell when it's "clean" just go by the color of the smoke I guess?

    Any other suggestions?

    Drill your bottom holes, burn it upright with a good hot fire, take it to the car wash and clean up the soot and you are ready to go.

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.
