I got one that had windshield washer fluid in it, and it wasn't a lined drum. Mine is fine and only took the time of a fire inside of it, then a clean out of the ash residue with soapy water.
Any good hot fire will take care of any oil or chemical, IMHO... and followed by a empty run of a seasoning smoke will coat the insides quite well.
