Just set a very large BBQ with lots of wood on it and burn it out. You will find most stuff is incinerated and you just need a wire brush to clean it off.

Open out a bin bag and then spray the grid with oven cleaner on both sides - after an hour take it to the garden/soil area and rinse well with hose. Repeat if required.

Job done.
