Default UDS Full O Water

Sooooooooooooooo, apparently the tarp I covered my newly built Big Poppa UDS with isn't water proof. We have gotten a ton of rain in the Portland area recently. It's 60 and sunny today so I was planning on throwing some ribs on the UDS. When I pulled the tarp off of the smoker I found a lid full of water. When I opened it I found ash soup in the drum all the way to the bottom vents.

The drum was nicely seasoned, If I empty the water out of the drum and do a nice hot burn will it be ok or is there anything else that I need to do? Should I sand and re-season? that will be a pain in the butt considering the seasoning on it.

Don't worry about the ribs though. Plan B went into affect and I threw them on the Kamado.

Thanks,
