I've used mineral oil drums in the past. Assuming it's totally clean inside right now (no mineral oil residue sitting in the bottom) just do a rinse out with tide+hot water, the do your build, and then do a seasoning burn before your first cook (spray PAM inside & let it get above about 425º). You should be good to go then, IMO.
