I have an old smoker. I cleaned all the rust from the inside and tried to wash the smoker, but the water just lays in the bottom of the grill.

Welcome to the site, do you have a shop vac? I wouldn't drill any holes in it, lay it over? then build a fire in it to dry it out

I would drill a hole but would keep in mind how to catch the grease. Also, welcome to the forum Larry.

Add a ball valve to the bottom for clean out, you don't want your smoker to drip grease on your deck or patio
