Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork

This recipe is almost too simple.....and too crazy sounding to be good. The recipe works and produces some of the best BBQ pulled pork. The ingredients are listed as approximates below. The actual amounts will depend on how big your slow cooker is and what size pork roast you use. Enjoy!

12-24 ounces of Root Beer
4-5 pound Pork Shoulder Roast (Boston Butt)
A bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
Hamburger Rolls or Kaiser Rolls to serve pork on (optional)

  1. Place the pork in a slow cooker. Cover the pork with Root Beer.
  2. Place slow cooker on High for 30 minutes to heat up the Root Beer then reduce to low.
  3. Cook for approximately 9 hours on low, until meat is completely cooked ans shreds easily. (Actual cooking time may be more or less depending on size of roast.)
  4. Remove meat from Root Beer sauce, drain crock pot.
  5. Shred meat, mix with BBQ sauce. Place back in crock pot to heat thoughly about 30 minutes
  6. Serve over rolls.
  • The fat from the meat will easily separate after cooking.
  • I have been told this works well with Dr. Pepper
