Steerable Barrels are a type of Barrel Cannon that can be moved and aimed in Donkey Kong Country 2. Steerable Barrels are exclusive to the stage "Fiery Furnace".

These Barrels are recognizable by their image of a "d-pad", or directional button insignia on the Barrel. Once jumped in, they can be steered in all directions, though not rotated and specifically aimed (as their counterparts Rotatable Barrels). Once entered, a countdown is initiated, after which the Barrel will automatically fire. Once fired, the Barrel will teleport back to its starting position.
