Preheat oven to 300°.

For the ribs, trim excess fat from ribs. Pierce meat between bones with a fork, then arrange on a baking sheet. Season both sides of ribs with salt and pepper. Tightly cover baking sheet with foil; bake ribs 2 hours.

For the sauce, heat oil in a saucepan over medium. Add onion and garlic; sweat until softened, 5 minutes. Stir in honey, miso, ketchup, vinegar, and soy sauce; simmer 5 minutes. Purée sauce with a handheld blender, then stir in lime juice and pepper flakes.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

Remove ribs from oven, coat with sauce, and grill, covered, until charred, 34 minutes per side. Transfer ribs to a platter, tent with foil, and let rest 510 minutes. Slice between bones and serve ribs with remaining sauce.
