Hell, yes. Just split them in half. This method works best with the longer Treviso variety as opposed to the round Chioggia.

Yes, sure, you can use a blow torch to char anything! ;-) I like the gas flame method. You can use a tongs to hold the wedges if you can't find a cake rack as Le Bec Fin mentions.

I'm a bigger fan of heating my cast iron skillet to as hot as I can get it without burning the house down, and searing radicchio hard in scant oil/fat. I find that a blowtorch makes food taste like gas if it spends more than a few seconds on a surface.
