On the sides it is basically clean and the bottom probably has an 1/8" of solidified corn syrup.
I am thinking I will just use it as a burn barrel to burn my wood chips and bark from a winter of chopping wood and then I will have a "seasoned" barrel to build my smoker with.
p.s. My other concern is that I get a burnt corn syrup/ash debris caked to the bottom of the barrel.
How about a couple pots of boiling water to dissolve it.
