Reserve 6 tablespoons butter mixture; brush cut side of buns with 2 tablespoons remaining butter mixture and cut sides of tails with 1/4 cup remaining butter mixture. Place tails on hot grill rack; cover and cook 7 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145° and shells are bright red, turning once. During last minute of cooking, place buns, cut side down, on hot grill rack; cover and cook 1 minute or until lightly toasted.

Transfer lobster tails to cutting board; carefully remove lobster meat from shells and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Transfer lobster meat to medium bowl; fold in shallot, celery and reserved 6 tablespoons butter mixture. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Serve lobster mixture in buns sprinkled with chives garnished with lemon wedges, if desired. Makes 4 lobster rolls.
