Method

In the kitchen: heat a griddle pan until very hot, brush lightly with oil and place the calçots on it. Turn them over with tongs and keep grilling until the outer skin is blackened and the flesh is tender when pierced with a knife.

If you are cooking out of doors: grill them over a glowing bed of charcoal, wood or, better still, vine prunings, until blackened and smoked and tender and juicy in the middle.
