Nooooooooo!!! No gasser please.
On a seroius note I've done tri tip and tomahawk steaks on the PBC and they turned out awesome. I've never cooked steaks on the grate partly due to the cuts (Tri tip,tomahawk) being large. I wouldn't hesitate to do smaller cuts of steak on the grate though or hanging for that matter. As far as how rare you want it cooked it's up to you. I first cranked the lid open to get it screaming hot which seared the steaks then I closed the lid for it to cook. You don't want to keep the lid open all the way through obvisouly to not burn you r steaks. Took them out at 130*ish
