Alternatively, set all the burners of a gas grill to high heat. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil grilling grate. Place peppers in a medium bowl, drizzle in olive oil, and toss to thoroughly coat peppers in oil. Place peppers on grill and cook until blistered all over, 1-3 minutes per side.
