Can't clean my cast iron grill - I've tried everything!

Does anybody have any other ideas about how to get that hardened black stuff off a brand new, just used once, cast iron grill? I tried Kosher salt then scrubbing with steel wool, I rubbed it with oil then baked it in a 500 degree oven for an hour, even scraped at it with a steak knife which took off a lot more than the gunk. My new grill is now streaked with black crust and lighter colored streaks where the knife stripped off the outer coating.
