In large non-metal bowl, combine all the ingredients except the ribs and pepper. Blend well and put in the ribs to marinade overnight.
Preheat the oven to 325. Remove the ribs from the marinade, drain and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle ribs with pepper. Place in 5 qt. roasting pan in a double layer. Roast 1 hour. Pour sauce over ribs. Increase heat to 350 degrees and bake until ribs just begin to char on top, about 1 1/2 hours. Turn ribs over cover pan and bake about 30 minutes longer, until ribs are tender and sauce is thick. To serve, place ribs on serving platter. Serve the sauce in a gravy boat on the side.
