Check your local pizzaria for worn out pans and see if they will sell you one. I have one mounted to the bottom of my basket (three inches below actually) and it catches about 90 percent of the ashes on a normal cook. Longer cooks result in spilled over ashes. Use a normal garden hoe and a fireplace broom to remove the excess that spills out of the pizza pan. Before the pizza pan, just used the hoe and brush. Any crust was removed with the hoe. Took about 10 minutes to clean out this way.
