Easy Crockpot Pulled Pork BBQ

Need to feed a large group?  Don't have a grill?  Try this!

Easy Crockpot Pulled Pork BBQ
Super easy!  Delish!  Good for days--so make extra!

1 pork roast (about four pounds)
Root Beer--a six pack or a 2 liter
1 Bottle of BBQ sauce (I recommend staying away from sweet sauce--you'll get sweet from the root beer)
1 onion (you can have more if you like onion in your BBQ--we just use it for flavoring)
Salt and Pepper--just a few sprinkles

  • Cut an onion in 3-4 pieces.  Leave them big enough to take out easily later.
  • Put the pork roast in the crockpot.
  • Fill it with root beer so that the roast is half way covered.
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or on high for 5-6 hours
  • Take out roast, pull apart with a fork on a plate
  • Get a ladle and drain some of the rootbeer (more than half)
  • Take out onions and discard
  • Add roast back, and pour bottle of BBQ in the crockpot
  • Add minced onions if you like
  • Mix and add more rootbeer as needed (depends on how juicy you want your BBQ to be)
  • Let it cook in the crockpot on high for an hour or so
  • Serve on buns with whatever sides you like (we like potato chips--so easy!)
This is so easy, and pretty amazing.  It's good to make and then have a BBQ sandwich for lunch all week!  I highly recommend it!

  2. I'm gonna have to try that! I love pulled pork, but have never attempted making it myself. And I'm sure it'll come in handy after Kevin gets here!
