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.
