Spareribs with Cherry Coke® Glaze

4 cans (12 oz.) Cherry Coke®, flat
2 cups cherry jam or preserves
2/3 cup Dijon mustard with horseradish
3 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. malt vinegar or apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp. hot pepper sauce (family fav)
7-1/2 lb. well-trimmed pork spareribs 
      Boil cherry coke in heavy, large saucepan over medium-high heat until reduced to 1-1/2 cups,  about 45 minutes.  Stir in next 5 ingredients.  Reduce heat to medium; simmer until mixture is reduced to 2-1/2 cups, stirring occasionally, about 35 minutes.  Transfer glaze to large bowl.  Position racks in top and bottom thirds of oven and heat to 325ºF (165ºC).  Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper.  Wrap each rib rack tightly in foil, enclosing completely.  Divide foil packets between 2 rimmed baking sheets.  Bake until ribs are very tender, switching positions of baking sheets halfway through baking, about 2 hours total.  Cool ribs slightly in foil.  Pour off any fat from foil packets.  Prepare barbecue (medium-low heat).  Cut each rib rack between bones into individual ribs.  Set aside 1 cup glaze.  Add ribs to bowl with remaining glaze and toss to coat.  Grill ribs until browned and glazed, turning to prevent burning, about 5 minutes total.  Serve, passing reserved glaze separately.
