Default Smoker rust removal

I am refurbishing an old smoker. The rust on the inside is the concern. I have started removing the rust with a wire brush and drill, but I am about to start on the cook box and the brackets that hold the shelves are welded into the box, not removable. Any ideas on how to clean the rust from around the brackets. Otherwise I will have to use the wire brush and a lot of time.

A sand-blaster would make quick work of it.

You could also try soaking it in something like CLR and then hitting the whole thing with a pressure-washer since most folks don't have access to a sand-blaster. If it is surface rust I imagine a lot of it would go away.

Sand it really good, high-pressure wash, coat with oil and then re-season it. That's what I have done before and it seems to work out well.
