So yes, cooking at 235 is a very good idea. If a more pronounced crust is desired, you can sear the outside at the end of the process.

El Ropo is 100% correct. Cooking at 235 will get you edge-to-edge pinkness, but no awesome crust.

Pop it into a 500F oven for 10 minutes after a good 20 minute rest and you'll have edge-to-edge medium rare with a crackly, thin crust.

Oh, and turn off your smoke detectors. I guess you could do it directly over the coals, but you'll need fresh ones.
