Bourbon-Barbecued Rib-Eye Steaks

I really love our new grill. You will probably notice that the past couple posts, and many posts to come, are dedicated to grilling. I recently purchased Weber's Real Grilling cookbook. It's really awesome. The book has tons of tips for people new to gas grilling aka people like me who have only used charcoal. This recipe was fantastic. It packs a great flavor with a mild spice. Plus, the marinate is easy as pie! Enjoy
Ingredients (from Weber's Real Grilling)

1/2 cup bourbon
1/4 cup ketchup
2 T extra-virgin olive oil
2 T soy sauce
1 T white wine vinegar
2 T garlic, minced
1/2 tsp hot sauce
1/2 tsp ground pepper

2 bone-in rib-eye steaks, about 1 1/4 lb each (I did not have use steaks with bone)
2 T extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 T finely chopped fresh Italian parsley (I omitted this)

To make marinade: In a medium bowl whisk marinade ingredients. Place steaks in a large ziploc bag and pour in the marinade, and turn several times to coat the meat. Place bag in a bowl and refrigerate for 1 1/2-2 hours.

Allow steaks to stand at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before grilling. Remove steaks from bag, and discard marinade. Pat steaks dry with paper towels. Brush both sides with olive oil.

In a small bowl, mix paprika, salt, and pepper. Press seasonings into both sides of the steaks. Grill over direct heat until cooked to desired temperature, turning once. Allow steaks to rest 3-5 minutes before serving. Garnish with parsley, and serve warm.
