So two things. First, I'd purchased a rib-eye as a just in case steak and cooked it along with the two in the package above. I didn't notice any difference in flavor between the cuts, but the unknown cuts were more tender than the rib-eye. The rib-eye wasn't tough, but the little unknown steaks were like a filet in their tenderness.

From a rub perspective, I'm an idiot. I made the paste, smashed it on the steaks and then topped with freshly ground black pepper and Kosher salt, but I forgot the paprika and chili powder until they were half done on the grill. I was trying to time it with the rest of the dinner and I'm just not used to fast cooking Anyway, good, but I could have used more salt and the chili-powder would have added some nice heat. All my fault... live and learn.

After letting the steaks rest mine was medium and I was shooting for medium rare. Still very good. I got my wife's steak to a perfect for her well done. Both were very juicy and I'd buy these again in a second!
