Pass on the brake cleaner drum. Burnout temperatures may not compare to welding temperatures, and you don't get your face in as close while doing a burnout like you would when welding, but there is a firsthand account of how sick someone got from phosgene gas when he welded metal he had cleaned with brake cleaner. Read it for yourself and then decide.

No doubt that this was a very isolated incident , but with so many other suitable drums out there and readily available, this one may not be worth the risk.
