Simple Green works to clean it up. Follow with a wet rag and heat at full blast an hour or two.,,JJ

Chef JJ has you started good to get it clean. After its clean, I would spray it good with a cooking oil and heat it up again to get it re-seasoned.

My Smoke Hollow electric was pretty grimy, racks and  all. Got out the pressure washer and cleaned completely.

let it dry and coated with oil, then smoked. No adverse effects noticed.

If not right, please correct me.
