Default Cleaning Off Rust Before Crud and Old Seasoning

I'm in a living situation where I can't set up a lye tank. Maybe during dry months I could set up an electrolysis tank that could be easily dismantled. In other words, I don't have access to a place out side of the home that's protected against the weather. So my clean up process is sort of limited to the Easy Off HD plastic bag method, and a small tub of vinegar/water for rust. I've always done EO HD first, then vinegar/water.

My question: I have a piece, a Griswold 10 griddle that is coated with rust. Okay, it's orange. Would it be feasible to do rust removal first before spraying on the Easy Off?

Since rust doesn't grow on crud, just on iron, it would seem that rust is all you need to treat for.
