Lobster Rolls with Lemon Vinaigrette and Garlic Butter

['4 (1 1/4-to 1 1/2-pounds) live lobsters', '3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice', '1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil', '1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions', '1/4 cup finely chopped peeled celery', '1/4 cup celery leaves', '1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley', '1/2 stick unsalted butter', '3 garlic cloves, smashed', '6 hot dog buns, preferably top-split', 'Accompaniment: lemon wedges']

Prepare a gas grill for direct-heat cooking over medium heat; see Grilling Procedure .
Plunge 2 lobsters headfirst into a large pot of salted boiling water and cook, partially covered, over medium-high heat 8 minutes (for 1 1/4-pounds lobsters) to 9 minutes (for 1 1/2-pounds lobsters) from time they enter water. Transfer with tongs to an ice bath and let stand until completely cooled. Return water to a boil and cook and cool remaining 2 lobsters. Remove meat from claws, joints, and tails. Coarsely chop meat.
Whisk together lemon juice, oil, and 1/2 tsp salt in a large bowl. Whisk in scallions, celery, celery leaves, and parsley, then add lobster and gently toss. Season with salt.
Melt butter with garlic in a small saucepan over low heat, mashing garlic with a spoon.
Brush inside of buns with garlic butter. Grill, buttered side down, until golden, about 1 minute.
Fill buns with lobster.
