  1. Combine the vinegar, sugar, and pepper in a small saucepan and, on the stove top, bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat and simmer vigorously until the mixture is syrupy and reduced by about two-thirds in volume (25-30 minutes). Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. Build a fire in your grill. When the coals are all ignited, the flames have died down, and the temperature is medium (see Gauging the temperature), you're ready to cook.
  3. Rub the peach halves lightly with oil, then put them on the grill directly over the coals, cut side down, and cook just until lightly seared-about 6 minutes. Flip them over, brush them generously with the glaze, and cook for 2-3 minutes more.
  4. Place the peaches cut side up on dessert plates and immediately top each one with a spoonful of goat cheese. Drizzle with some additional glaze if desired, and serve warm.
