My grilling grate, made of expanded metal, has complete rusted. I was able to use my drill and a wire brush attachment to clean the surface area, but it's the angled sides that are still rusty. Cleaning the rest by hand will be very time consuming.

Is there another easier/simpler way to get the rest off? I see many videos that claim baking soda + water, or vinegar, or oil, etc. will help. Can you share your favorite method?

Just take a wire brush to it top and bottom them rinse heat and re-season it. you will not get the orange look off easy all you really need to do is get the loose stuff and you will be fine.
I hope this helps. Very Happy

It depends on the severity of the rust but I'll hit it with the pressure washer to blow the surface stuff off otherwise for the lighter stuff I'll just wire brush it. Once cleaned, an application of some vegetable oil, some heat to set it, then we're good to go.
