I clean the bottom of my UDS with a shop vac after every couple of cooks. It works great.

I just flame over any grease pools outside the charcoal basket with my weed burner!

I open the side fire box door, spray some ProForce oven, grill and fryer cleaner on the fat, rinse and dry.

Spare lid, just cut off the outside ring and bend up the edges... I attached a ring on it to grab it and lift it out, it covers up most of the bottom so you don't get the mess.

Every once in a while i'll weed burn if there is an grease down there.

I did a Bacon Cheeseburger fatty (4lbs) and it left a Big puddle of grease in the bottom of my UDS. I left the lid off for a little longer than I should have when I was removing my fatty and the coals lit the grease up. Had a nice grease fire going for about half an hour. Took care of it. Got a bit of bubbling on some of the high temp paint at the bottom but didnt mess with my Eagles Stencil. Because the Eagles can handle the Heat!!! At least on a UDS, the football field is another story entirely....

A 16 inch pizza pan is what I use in mine and it serves a double purpose as it works as a heat deflector and helps with the extra drippings that are not caught by my drip pan. I think it works wonderfully.

I've had my UDS for a little over a month now. Done 3 racks of ribs, a pork shoulder, a chuck roast, and 3 chickens so far. Pretty good puddle forming. Tonight I looked in before setting up for a brisket. Decided the puddle had to go. Method: Lift, tip, dump on ground. Seemed to work.

I have an ash catcher attached to the charcoal basket on both of my UDSs. now. On my old UDS, which didn't have anything to catch ashes/grease, i would simply take the basket and racks out and dump everything out.

I'm afraid that washing/rinsing will effect the seasoning of the smoker. Maybe not.
