Default Cleaning Expanded Metal Cooking racks

Any suggestions for what works best to clean these? I'm using a Humprey's Battlebox and after the first few cooks washing the racks in the home sink have been a disaster. Sink to small big mess everywhere. I've read that some people use a weed torch and wire brush to get them clean afterwards. I'm starting to see the convenience in rounded metal stainless steel ones. Any suggestions would be welcome, and thanks.

Degreaser and a power washer work pretty well if you want them back to bare metal. A ball of aluminum foil works great to the all the big chunks off.

I power wash mine every 3 to 5 cooks, depending how big/messy they've been, and just spot treat with balled up foil to knock the chunks off in between. Running the cooker for a bit after the meat comes off tends to help.
