I clean my smoker after I've taken the meat off to rest. That's the perfect time to do it and it helps make sure you don't go out there a week later and find some sort of wicked biology experiment growing in there.

Open the smoke chamber, dump the water pan, wash it out and set on top of the fire box to dry. Spray the racks, walls and bottom with a water hose and use a grill brush if necessary. Put the water pan back in place, let the whole thing dry and then spray with a light coating of veggie oil or Pam spray. Go back the next day or after the fire is out and dump the ashes. Ashes left in a firebox, especially in a humid environment, only accelerates the rust through process.
