Default Cleaning out the inside of your barrel

Even after vacuming I have "crust" on the bottom of my UDS. Should I just leave it alone or do you guys scrape this stuff out after every cook and re oil?

I think I am going to build an ash catcher cause my shop vac is getting too much use and I want to protect the bottom of my barrel somewhat so it doesn't rust out. I didn't use to mind vacuming out my ashes but to be honest I am getting tired of it. The piles of ash clog my filter almost immediately and it loses suction. Then I got to pull it apart and clean it and it happens again almost immediately. That ash is thick stuff.
