Hoisin-Glazed Barbecue Ribs

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm. Health food they're not, but hey, you only live once!

6-8 lbs meaty pork back ribs
1 c hoisin sauce
3/4 c ketchup
1/3 c honey
1/4 c fresh lemon or lime juice
1/4 c rice vinegar
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 T chopped fresh ginger
1 T sesame oil
1 t oriental chili paste (or 1/2 hot pepper flakes, or a few drops of hot pepper sauce)

Cut ribs into serving-sized pieces, cover with water in a large pot, boil and simmer at least 45 minutes. Drain well. Whisk all other ingredients together, brush on both sides of ribs and marinade for 4-24 hours, setting aside some of the marinade for basting and dipping if you like. Half an hour before cooking, remove from refridgerator and allow to come to room temp. Preheat barbecue to medium, oil the grill and cook ribs meaty side down. Cook 10 minutes, until crisp and glazed.
