I slice a little more than 1/4" thick, coat with a bit of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and other seasoning (like mustard seed or Rosemary) then grill. I leave the skin on (after scrubbing). I've never parboiled first. They take a while, but I love the char they get on the grill.

TobiT - I use a similar preparation to roast them, whole or in large chunks. Can do at various temperatures while cooking other food. Low & slow, or hot & fast.

Agreed on the par boil - I then grill them on heavy foil with olive oil, they get the smoke and the char without sticking or falling through - and you can add rosemary and such ...

I par boil them then grill. Grilling without precook ing and they do not get soft enough for eating without burning the outsides.
