Cleaning the Egg Exterior?

My XL is getting a build up of gunk on the outside. What have you found works best to make it look good?

    When warm I used simple green and a soft scouring pad.
    Green egg, dead animal and alcohol. The "Boro".. TN 
    I use grease lightning. Stuff is awesome. 

    Simple green will do the trick as well. Both are all purpose cleaners.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...
