  1. Prepare the lobsters and preheat a grill to medium heat.
  2. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook until the fat begins to render, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour about half of the butter-oil into a bowl and keep warm; leave the sausage in the skillet. Add the panko to the skillet; cook, tossing, until crisp and golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley, chives and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Brush the lobster tails and cavities with some of the reserved butter-oil; season with salt and pepper. Firmly pack the breadcrumb mixture into the cavities and onto the tails; drizzle with more of the reserved butter-oil.
  4. Place the lobsters on the grill shell-side down; cover with a disposable aluminum pan and cook until the shells turn red and the stuffing is crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley; serve with lemon wedges and the remaining butter-oil for dipping.
