Keep an eye on it, and take it out carefully when the solder melts. A heat gun would work as well, or heating the buss bar on the grill and then placing it on the solder.

Just thinking out loud. lol

I think that your last idea of the grill or even just lay the buss accross the stove top burner should work well. keep in mind that you dont want to get the board it self too hot or it will delaminate; you only want the buss just hot enough to melt the solder.
