Welcome to SMF!

Like JLeonard JLeonard said.. a water pan will help keep those drippings of that tray.

Also for easier clean up you can cover that tray in aluminum foil and replace as needed.

but i think this decreases the temperature. Water stops at 100 degrees celcius en sometimes you need 180-200 degrees celcius
The water in the pan will absorb heat but the cooker will be producing more heat than the water can hold.
The water will boil away slowly, add moisture to the cook chamber and keep the drippings away from the heat source.
Just add water to the tray every hour or two.

That is the same principal as a RF smoker, the grease burning off the plate flavors the meat.
