Cleaning Cast Iron Griddle

Tonight I cooked fajitas on my cast iron semi-circle griddle.  The fajitas were a hit but my griddle had about an 1/8th of an inch of burned on fajita sauce on it.  I spent about 30 minutes scraping it with a razor blade scraper, soapy water, and a scouring pad.  So after all this I was wondering if there wasa better way to clean the griddle.  I'm wondering now if I should have cranked up the heat to 600 and burned the funk off?  Any recommendations (besides go out for fajits)?

    Heat, rock salt, and elbow grease. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    How you cleaned it, is the best way. I use a metal stout spatula to scrape mine. Right after cookin, pull from heat and scrape. Makes cleaning much easier.
    This is one reason why iron is so sacred to people who understand its awesomeness. Not many people like that left.

    Paul Go there. I write it.
