plugged up grills, ignition jets... how to clean?

Bought a used grill that has me busy cleaning it as it was filthy! Got all the grills & igniton jets to work with the exception of one.. the jet & the burner must be clogged with BBQ grease or something. What can I soak these in to try & clean them? I have tried the ZEB orange spray cleaner I got at Home Depot but I think I need to use something that the things can be soaked in for awhile to loosen the stuff that is plugging them.... would appreciate any ideas you have tried that worked!

RE: plugged up grills, ignition jets... how to clean?

You can look for a long, flexible brush... Resembles a bottle brush, but wire. You really Ned to get the crud out or risk a fire in grill. Stiff wire brush works well on any external crud. Once internal and external gunk is gone, I'd fire up grill on high and let it go for a good half hour to burn off anything that might be left..
