I wouldn't worry to much with your daily cooker. I keep a plastic chisel/scraper in the arsenal and only scrape down the bowl if I cooked something like chicken that dripped down. Personally, I just don't like the funk left on there.
If you do or get into a lot of indirect cooking, laying down foil under your protein will definitely help your cooker from getting nasty.

Made the mistake once not foiling while smoking ribs and never make that mistake again.

I use disposable foil pans under my cooks.  I've recently tried "drip beans" which I have seen mentioned here quite a bit.  Get a disposable foil pan to put under your slow-n-low cooks, and put a can or two of baked beans in the pan for your entire slow-n-low cook.  They are awesome!  Before doing beans I usually put some hot water in my pans as a heat sync.  The beans act just the same but give you something good to eat at the end!
Man, that's a awesome idea ! Definitely trying that next time I do a Boston butt ! Do you preseason your beans like you would normally do or after the smoke is finished ?

I've only done it twice.  Two big cans of bushs baked beans.  No special flavor just plain old baked beans. Put some bacon slices in one batch.  Neither batch needed anything else in my opinion.  Got plenty of spices and fatty goodness from the meat that was slowly melting above it.

Getting a WSM within  the next two weeks. Think that would work in the water pan ? Or is it too close to the fire ? Have to do some research and see. Thanks again man

I think that would be to close to the fire and probably burn to the bottom of the bowl. Just my thought though. I don't have a wsm.

Agree with Travis, bad idea. It will boil the bejesus out of your beans! Better to drop a cast iron oven onto the lower grate for a few hours at the beginning of the cook. Don't let it sit the whole time. Lot's of good bean info if you search "drip beans". @OoPEZoO has the recipe I use, it's awesome. Leftover pulled pork mixed in the day or two after is even better.
