Default Backdraft in a drum

Anyone ever had this happen?

I was cooking 8 butts on 2 racks in a drum. The bottom 4 and 2 of the top 4 were done. While moving them around, I started to get a pretty good grease fire in the bottom of the drum. I put the lid back on to snuff it out. about 2 minutes later, the drum reversed air flow and blew out of the intake holes in the bottom with quite a bit of force while drawing from the exhaust holes in the lid. Wish I had a video, but had no idea it was about to happen.
