Crock-Pot BBQ Root Beer Pulled Pork

I cooked 2 4lb pork roasts for the party. I would say each roast shredded will feed about 10 people.  You can serve alone or on buns as sandwiches. 


  • 1 3-4 lb pork roast
  • 1 liter Root Beer approx.
  • 1 large yellow onion – sliced optional
  • 1 24 oz bottle your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 8-12 hamburger buns split and toasted


  • Trim all visible fat from the pork.
  • Place the pork in the bottom of the crock pot.
  • Poor root beer over until the meat is completely covered.
  • Add the sliced onion on top (optional).
  • Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the
  • pork shreds easily, about 6 to 7 hours.
  • When the meat is cooked through and it falls apart, drain most of the root beer. (I leave about 1/3 of the liquid to keep the pork moist).
  • Using two forks, shred the pork into bite size pieces.
  • Stir in the barbecue sauce and keep warm.
  • Serve on hamburger buns (optional) with sliced pickles, onions, and extra barbecue sauce.
