I like Super Clean.It will fade the paint if you mix it too strong but is the BEST cleaner/degreaser I have EVER used.

Goo Gone All-Natural Grill Cleaner

Love this stuff, cut the build up UNDER my UDS lid, clean right down to the paint.

Simple Green is what I use.

I started with 'Goo Gone', but when I tried 'Simple Green' it cost less and worked as well or better.
Heck, I even use 'Simple Green' to clean my Black Powder rifles in the field.

Greased Lightning in the yellow bottle at Home Depot and other big box stores.

I use the same stuff on the outside of my Weber grills and smokers that I use on my German cars. Meguiar's soap and every few years, my Porter Cable polisher and some Meguiar's polish.

For degreasing a really greasy surface, there is nothing better than some Dawn dishwater. Just don't use it on a car unless you plan to wax it. Dawn will not only cut the grease, but will also strip wax.

So, if grease is your target, I recommend a bucket of hot water and some Dawn dish detergent.

Purple Power 1:1. Also use it to degrease old tractors. Good stuff and cheap.

I use a product called Awesome, all purpose Degreaser, they carry it at the Dollar store, for a $1.00. Works very good.

+1 to Simple Green. The ZEP brand even has their own version of Simple Green which works as good or better, and is much cheaper.

I'll also give a +0.5 to Awesome because it was my favorite prior to discovering the ZEP brand of cleaning products, in particular their Simple Green.

Degrease it? Not me. I just scrape of the loose stuff burn it out a little and spray veg oil inside and out.

I have BBQ's that have been outdoors for more then 15 years. Never had a single spot of rust.

Round here we call grease seasoning.

ZEP 1 gal. Heavy Duty Floor Stripper (http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&productId=100032160&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&cm_sp=BazVoice-_-RLP-_-100032160-_-x&locStoreNum=2580)

This stuff is nuts. I use it to clean the heavy grease on my trailer frame and underside of my smoker before I paint it. Use it straight in a spray bottle.
