Open leg roasts and trim internal and external fat.  Score the inside; rub with oil, garlic and rosemary.  Rub outside of roasts with oil and season with salt and pepper.  Tie roasts with butcher’s twine; place in large baking dishes.  Roast at 350°F for 30 minutes; reduce temperature to 300°F and continue cooking until internal temperature reaches 115°F.  Remove from oven; tent with foil until ready to carve.  Serve with dipping sauces. 

For the Miso Aioli:  In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, lime juice and miso until smooth; season to taste.  Thin with water to desired consistency.

For the Chermoula Sauce:  In a food processor, add parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, paprika and coriander.  Add oil slowly until a rough chop paste forms. Do not over blend as you want to see flakes of parsley and cilantro.  Adjust seasoning to taste. 

For the Smoked Red Chili Chimichurri:  In a bowl, combine oil, vinegar, parsley, onion, oregano, chilies, paprika and garlic.  Season to taste.
