Have not tried it but one thread suggested using oven cleaner and then put in a plastic bag over night or a couple of days.

Oven cleaners are quite strong/harsh. I have no doubt that they would do the job but at what cost, i.e. can it be assured that the chemicals won't leach out into the food (despite being rinsed well)? I wouldn't like to chance it.

I've recommended liquid ammonia but not oven cleaner.

Cast iron isn't that porous, so the chemicals wouldn't penetrate it and then get into food cooked in it.
