Slice the meaty side of ribs, opposite the bone, 1/2 inch apart and 1/2 inch deep, both lengthwise and crosswise. Put ribs in a large plastic food storage bag.
Mix together teriyaki sauce, garlic, hot pepper sauce, sesame seeds and sugar then pour on top of the ribs. Remove all the air from the bag; and close securely. Flip bag over many times to coat the ribs completely. Refrigerate 4 hours, occasionally flipping the bag.
Remove ribs then discard marinade.
Grill (or broil) 4 inches from hot coals (or the heat source) turning occasionally, for 15-18 minutes, or until ribs become crisp and brown.
