Grilled Bistecca with Herby Fish Sauce

['2 (1 1/2"–2"-thick) porterhouse steaks (about 6 lb. total)', '1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided', 'Kosher salt', '3 Tbsp. freshly ground black pepper', '2 garlic cloves, finely grated', '1/4 cup fish sauce', '2 Tbsp. coarsely chopped marjoram', 'rosemary', 'and/or thyme']

Rub steak with 1/4 cup oil; season with salt and sprinkle with pepper (it should nearly cover both sides). Let sit at room temperature 30 minutes.
Mix garlic, fish sauce, herbs, and remaining 1/4 cup oil in a small bowl.
Prepare a grill for medium-high indirect heat (for a gas grill, leave one or two burners off; for a charcoal grill, bank coals on one side of grill). Grill steaks over direct heat until nicely charred, about 2 minutes per side. Move steaks over indirect heat and continue grilling, basting with fish sauce mixture, until browned all over, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of steaks should register 120°F for rare; temperature will rise to 125°F (or medium-rare) as they rest. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 20 minutes before slicing against the grain.
